If you are using the bash shell, you should put something like the
following into your ~/.bash_profile and make sure to port this file to
your new setups.
# include tex man path
#end of modifications
Of course, you would need to change this to 2008... etc whenever you
update your texlive. There has to be a better way, perhaps some sort
of symbolic link that gets updated whenever TeXLive is installed, but
that's over my head.
