This is a bug in our manpage handling, Solaris requires that cat pages
have the suffix of the section rather than simply '.0', so for example we
should install the pkg_delete cat page as 'cat1/pkg_delete.1'.  It doesn't
find it, so tries to parse the original and fails as explained elsewhere.

I had a patch for this somewhere a while ago but never got around to
cleaning it up and committing.  If someone else gets there first...
