Re: bin/46637: makemandb fails with segmentation fault

Sorry I must have overlooked your initial suggestion of replacing the man pages #;^( #;^(.  Asleep at the wheel ...

I will do another system upgrade soon in order to get the rest of the man pages.  Thanks for all your suggestions help!!!

Good to know :)

That's what I had asked you to do at the first place, update the man
pages. However, be warned that since you completely removed
/usr/share/man and brought man pages from man.tgz, some man pages
might be missing on your system (man.tgz does not have all the man
pages). To get the complete set of man pages, either update your
installation with rest of the binary sets from nyftp or build and
update it yourself.

This might help you, since you are already tracking current:
