1.8.6.5 Reading the PostgreSQL man pages

By default, the PostgreSQL man pages are installed into ‘/usr/local/pgsql/man’. By default, UnixWare does not look there for man pages. To be able to read them you need to modify the MANPATH variable in ‘/etc/default/man’, for example:

MANPATH=/usr/lib/scohelp/%L/man:/usr/dt/man:/usr/man:/usr/
  share/man:scohelp:/usr/local/man:/usr/local/pgsql/man

On OpenServer, some extra research needs to be invested to make the man pages usable, because the man system is a bit different from other platforms. Currently, PostgreSQL will not install them at all.
