Description of problem:
man-1.5j-2 - /usr/bin/apropos seems to have gained an "a" instead of a null
value for $aproposgrepopt2 at line 23.
The effect of this is that apropos (or man -k) prepends an "a" to the string it
greps for in whatis (ie "man -k foo" actually greps for "afoo" instead of "foo").
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.man -k foo
Actual Results: "foo: nothing appropriate"
Expected Results: should have returned lines from whatis matching "foo"

Thanks, fixed in 1.5j-3
