Ho folks,

there exists three solutions to the manpath problem:

1. you could create the directories as needed :-((

2. you could edit the file /etc/manpath.config (see man page of manpath)
and remove the offending directories. that doesn't fix the problem :-((

3. you could fix the problem in the source file manp.c. Look for the
function "def_path", then search for the statement "dlp++;". It's at the
wrong place. move it down one line, so that it's executed every iteration.
that's it :-))

so long
