> Steps to Reproduce:

# rpm -q libreswan
# man ipsec_whack | head -1
IPSEC_PLUTO(8)                Executable programs               IPSEC_PLUTO(8)

> 2. man ipsec whack

Apparently one cannot reference manual page witch space on rhel6. Thus step 2 is invalid, 'mak ipsec whack' is equivalent to calling 'man ipsec; man whack'.
