Description of problem:
I created a man page in /usr/local/man/man1/foo.1, but I can't view it
with man. Typing 'man -w' doesn't list /usr/local/man.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type 'man -w'
2. Type 'mkdir -p /usr/local/man/man1; echo hello >
/usr/local/man/man1/foo.1; chmod -R a+rX /usr/local/man'
3. Type 'man -w'

/usr/local/man. I have changed the /etc/sysconfig/i18n file to say
Changing LANG="en_US.UTF-8" fixes the path problem.
Thank your for your notice.
Works for man-1.5p-1.
