Description of problem:
The 1289 man pages in Lapack refer to function/subroutine calls, not shell commands.  As such, they belong in section 3 of the man pages, not section 1.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -ql lapack

Actual Results:  man pages are listed as /usr/share/man/manl/xxxxx.l.gz

Thank you for your notice.
Lapack man pages are in section l (not in section 1). 
I think lapack man pages can be in this section becouse of in section 3 there
are a lot of other manual pages and section l is quite less used so lapack man
pages are more tabular here.
