When I try to view the man page for pnmpad, I see:

pnmpad  is  part  of the Netpbm package.  Netpbm documentation is 
kept in HTML

Please refer to <http://netpbm.sourceforge.net/doc//pnmpad.html>.

If that doesn't work, also try  <http://netpbm.sourceforge.net>  and  
Bryan Henderson, bryanh@giraffe-data.com.

Note that making the documentation available this way was a choice of 
the per-
son who installed Netpbm on this system.   It  is  also  possible  
to  install
Netpbm such that you would simply see the documentation instead of 
the message
you are reading now.

The two problems here are that the man pages should be installed and 
the first URL in the message above shouldn't have an extra slash in

OK, i checked how the heck that works now in netpbm and created a big
tarball with all postprocessed manpages.

netpbm-10.19-3 and later will have proper manpages again.

Read ya, Phil

PS: I'm a fan of real manpages, too. :-)
