The installation puts the man pages in /usr/local/mann
with an extension of .n . HP-UX 11i is expecting a
/usr/local/mannew directory with .new extension. Tis a
minor headache to correct but just thought you should
know. Happens with tk as well.

    Is this the only man directory that is not right? At
    configure time
    one should be able to set --mandir, but that might not do
    everything
    you need.

    Here are the vars that may be of interest in Makefile.in:

    MAN_INSTALL_DIR = $(INSTALL_ROOT)$(mandir)
    MAN1_INSTALL_DIR = $(MAN_INSTALL_DIR)/man1
    MAN3_INSTALL_DIR = $(MAN_INSTALL_DIR)/man3
    MANN_INSTALL_DIR = $(MAN_INSTALL_DIR)/mann

    The only directory affected is the mann dir. 11i expects a
    mannew directory with all of the files in the directory to have
    a .new extension. We got around it by manually copying the
    files over to the mannew directory and then changed the
    extension from .n to .new. I think the mandir option would
    only affect the directory name and not the extensions. Am I
    correct on that?

    This is still actually an issue. Who knows why HP has to be different.
