 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
 Parsing: /usr/share/man/man1/atari/msconfig.1
 ... lots of other manual pages ...
 Parsing: /usr/pkg/man/man1/ksh93.1
 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...)
 Best Regards,
