MacTeX configures MANPATH as part of the installation, and uses the
Laurens-Wierda TeX Distribution structure so the correct man pages
will be shown depending on your active distribution. The method of
configuring MANPATH changed in Leopard, but this will work when TeX
Live 2008, and thus MacTeX-2008, is released.
