Hi Jack.

Check out your shell's .profile file - after installing PostgreSQL,
it recommends that you add something like:

MANPATH=$MANPATH:/usr/local/pgsql/man
PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/pgsql/bin:/usr/local/bin
PGLIB=/usr/local/pgsql/lib
PGDATA=/usr/local/pgsql/data
export PATH MANPATH PGLIB PGDATA

you just need to evaluate the current manpath so it becomes importable,
so add a line at the top like:

MANPATH=`manpath`



Works for us ;-)
