It's currently defined individually in: man(1), catman(1) (not used here?), quiz(6), wump(6). makemandb(8), msgs(1). mail(1), fish(6) and cribbage(6) define it as _PATH_MORE. makemandb(8) cannot handle defined but empty PAGER="". It attempts to popen(3).. and this operation seems to be legal in my local tests. Simplified patch for the man(1) part: http://netbsd.org/~kamil/patch-00037-MANPAGER.txt check_pager() will now append " -s" to _PATH_PAGER if "/usr/bin/more". I would introduce MANPAGER into makemandb(7) and man(1) in one go.
