Problem is not related with the kernel itself; manual pages are
the standard ones provided with the NetBSD 1.6.1/i386 cdrom.
A discussion started on a previous PR (misc/23278) provides all
the information required to understand and fix this bug. In short,
manual pages provided with XFree86 use spaces instead of hyphens (-)
The problem can be easily observed in most (all?) X11 manual pages.
Greg A. Woods provides a full description of the problem and how
it can be fixed in an unrelated PR (misc/23278). A fine and detailed
description of this issue was provided by Greg on that PR.
I want to acknowledge Greg for the detailed description of this problem,
and Thomas Klausner for fixing the previous bug and closing that PR.
