No success, Herb. I just reinstalled (via TLU)
  universal-darwin files of texdoc
  x86_64-darwin files of texdoc

No Change:
~$ texdoc listings
/usr/texbin/texdoc:7: module 'texdoc.main' not found:
	no field package.preload['texdoc.main']
	[kpse lua searcher] file not found: 'texdoc.main'
	[kpse C searcher] file not found: 'texdoc.main'
	[kpse All-in-one searcher] file not found: 'texdoc'

Thanks for your interest.
