 There doesn't seem any obvious way to fix it, although I may be
 missing something in the soup of linked lists and abuse of glob_t.
 It looks like at the bottom of manual() one could filter pg->gl_pathv
 for duplicates, but knowing which things are duplicates requires logic
 that's been carefully boiled out of man(1) itself but also isn't
 available from the man.conf data.
