I'm using pkgsrc 2009Q3 under opensolaris build 127.
When I type 'man pkg_delete' I get a totally unformatted continuous

$ exec groff -Tlatin1 -mandoc -P -c "$@"
But anyway, there is also a preformatted man page for pkg_delete
($LOCALBASE/man/cat8/pkg_delete.0), which should have been installed
during bootstrapping. I don't know why this is not the case for you.
