Description Sammy 2003-01-15 20:47:00 UTC
Using man--1.5k-2 from rawhide options entered in /etc/man.config have no effect 
whereas /usr/share/misc/man.config controls the configuration. If this is a permanent 
change /etc/man.config should be removed from the package.

No, the one in /misc is wrong. Will fix.

Comment 2 Eido Inoue 2003-02-06 21:23:07 UTC
fixed in man-1.5k-5
