Same in 8.0
Comment 2 Eido Inoue 2003-01-07 15:04:03 EST
"/etc/man.conf"? You mean "/etc/man.config", yes.

I don't see any references to /usr/local/* in 8.0's (or 7.3's) /etc/man.config,
other than the MANPATH /usr/local/man. Packages from Red Hat don't install in
/usr/local/share/man, and tarballs that are configure/make with the GNU default
for prefix (/usr/local) normally install in /usr/local/man, not
/usr/local/share/man, so the search behavior seems to be correct.
