Description Derek Tattersall 1999-03-24 21:43:47 UTC
In /etc/man.config MANPATH is set to /usr/lib/perl5/man,
whereas the man pages are in /usr/lib/perl5/5.00502/man.

This might actually be done in the perl package, not sure.

Comment 2 Cristian Gafton 1999-04-07 17:08:59 UTC
Fixed in perl-5.00503-1 and newer.
