how can I get man not to use the cat preformatted versions without 
manually editing the man.conf file (and without using a custom man.conf 

Is there some switch to do this? I tried various, but didn't see any 

I want to look at fd(4) for example.

$ man -w fd

I do not want to read the cat4 version hopefully by using some man command 
line switch.
