        The rebuild_whatisdb section contains an invocation of test with
        a folded line (lines 84 and 85), within which "-o" appears twice
        consecutively, once at the end of the first line, and once at the
        beginning of the second.  The offending construct is

          if [ -x /usr/libexec/makewhatis -a \( -f /etc/man.conf -o \
              -o -d /usr/share/man \) ]; then

        Set rebuild_whatisdb=YES in /etc/weekly.conf and notice the message

          [: closing paren expected
          Not rebuilding whatis databases

        in the /etc/weekly report.
        Remove the redundancy.  E.g., change to:

          if [ -x /usr/libexec/makewhatis \
                -a \( -f /etc/man.conf -o -d /usr/share/man \) ]; then
