This looks correct, and tells us that the target for the man page is being
properly generated.  This isn't surprising -- I also run XFree86-4.1.0, and
I get the same results when I do this.

Based on what you've given us above, I don't think this is an XF3/XF4 issue.
Do you have any custom settings in your host.def or site.def file?  Also,
when was your XFree86-4.1.0 distribution built?  Since your pkgsrc isn't
behaving in quite the way expected by everyone else, it may be wise to
solve this before making changes to other packages.
