/etc/man.config should MANPATH_MAP /usr/local/share/man

Description of problem:
However, filesystem-2.1.6-2 creates /usr/local/share/man and does not create
/usr/local/man. This implies that /etc/man.config should contain this instead:
MANPATH_MAP /usr/local/sbin /usr/local/share/man
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): man-1.5j-6
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure, build, and install an executable program into /usr/local/bin, with
its man pages in /usr/local/share/man. With GNU configure-based programs, such
as mutt-1.3.99, you can do './configure --mandir=/usr/local/share/man; make
2. Make sure /usr/local/bin is in your $PATH.
3. Do 'man mutt' (or whatever).
Actual Results: [roger@kiera roger]$ man mutt
No manual entry for mutt
Expected Results: Show the mutt(1) man page.
I tested the first line of the proposed change and it seems to work as expected.
