After building xorg (imake, libs, and server, probably all others) I
get errors like "unable to stat SOME MAN PAGE".  It keeps looking for
/usr/pkg/xorg/man1/PAGE.1, but the page is installed as
/usr/pkg/xorg/man1/PAGE.1.gz.  I've changed the MAN_SUFFIX and all
other *_SUFFIX variables in meta-pkgs/xorg/Makefile.common to have the
.gz extension on the end, but it still looks for it without.  In PLIST
it uses those variables to look for the files, but a "bmake show-var
VARNAME=MAN_SUFFIX" shows it with the .gz on the end.

This is on DragonFly using recent 2004Q4, any ideas?
