Some time ago, src/share/man/man4/man4.x86 has been added for the common man 
pages, and it already contains a number of man pages, but there was no big push 
to move stuff there. Feel free to!
It's easy, just copy the files, change the machine (last) in the .Dt argument 
to "x86", add it to the Makefile, cvs add, cvs remove at old location, and fix 
up the set lists.
