Hm. I had tried that more than once before. When I go to the
http://www.NetBSD.org/ page and "do the obvious thing" to get there,
now, I can get the man-page, but the URL that I'm told is used is:
...i.e., missing the "1" (section number). links displays the
page, but shows me a URL that can't get back. This is probably
what I got in the past, and is probably why I was never able to
refer to the page.
