hi there,

i'm not sure what happend here. i updated a few ports the other day using
'portupgrade -a'. nothing special really. today however i notice some manual
pages like gcc46 are missing. so i checked the contents of /usr/local/man/man1
and this is what i found:

i have over 500 ports installed and now every manual page which was installed
before running 'portupgrade -a' has been wiped out. :(

can the following have caused some kind of problems?

otaku% file /usr/local/share/man 
/usr/local/share/man: symbolic link to `../man'
otaku% file /usr/local/man
/usr/local/man: directory

manual pages in other directories, like /usr/local/man/man8 don't seem to have
been scrubbed. only the section 1 manuals.

cheers.
alex
