It's indeed not included in the teTeX tree, texmf.tetex, upon which  
Gerben Wierda's distribution of TeX is based. That's because Thomas  
Esser -- the "te" in teTeX -- was very strict on licensing issues, in  
order (I think) for teTeX to be able to be included in Debian.

Because, however, UK hyphen is necessary to some of us -- me included  
--, Gerben has kindly included it in his additional TeX tree,  
texmf.gwtex. See /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.gwtex/tex/generic/

Two alternatives:

- ManOpen from <http://www.clindberg.org/projects/ManOpen.html>. The  
URL doesn't seem to work today, but it usually does; see on  
VersionTracker <http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/ 
2734>. Very nice GUI to man pages (viewing, printing, navigating from  
one page to the other). The way man pages should work. Includes both  
a GUI application ManOpen, and a CLI tool openman.

- If you install Apple's Developer Tools, the included application  
Xcode has a menu item "Help > Open man page...". IMHO not as nice as  
ManOpen, though.
