The description of problem is contained in the original bug report.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for

This bug/component is not included in scope for RHEL-5.11.0 which is the last RHEL5 minor release. This Bugzilla will soon be CLOSED as WONTFIX (at the end of RHEL5.11 development phase (Apr 22, 2014)). Please contact your account manager or support representative in case you need to escalate this bug.
This bug has been fixed via man-pages-overrides package. Due to a late development phase of RHEL-5, further update of this component is not expected. Therefore, we are closing this bug as WONTFIX.
