I have the same problem (NetBSD-6.1_RC1 amd64): "apropos <anything>"
aborts with the error:
apropos: Unable to query schema version: disk I/O error
In my case, the root cause of the problem is makemandb aborting with
a memory fault at a specific manual page:
# makemandb -f -v
Building temporary file cache
... lots of other manual pages ...
Memory fault (core dumped)
The error does not occur if I delete the package ast-ksh which provides
the ksh93 manual page. Alternatively it is possible to remove the case
differentiations at the beginning of the ksh93 manual page. (I'm not
really familiar with *roff-syntax, so I do not dare to submit a patch...)
