	in man.conf, this almost works:
_subdir     cat1 man1 cat8 man8 cat6 man6 cat2 man2 cat3 man3 cat4 man4 cat5 man
5 cat7 man7 cat3f man3f cat9 man9 catn mann catl manl perl
_build      .p[lm]         basename %s .pl | xargs /usr/pkg/bin/perldoc -U

then, (e.g.) "touch /usr/share/man/perl/" will allow "man DB to work"

but it needs an empty file created in /usr/share/man/perl for each perl
doc page.
