As a fix to PR #40063, the uuencode(1)/uudecode(1) manpage was changed.
Usage of compress(1) in the example in the `EXAMPLES' section was
replaced by usage of tar(1), but the `SEE ALSO' section wasn't updated
along with this change. Also, the reference to uucp(1) in the `SEE ALSO'
section should be removed since the example now uses an SMTP e-mail
address instead of an UUCP address (plus, uucp(1) was removed from
NetBSD with the release 4.0 anyway; see

Optionally, gzip(1) might be put into the `SEE ALSO' section, since
tar(1)'s `-z' parameter is used in the example.
"man 1 uuencode" (or "man 1 uudecode");
look up the `EXAMPLES' and `SEE ALSO' sections.
(Proposed) patch:
