5.10. Man Pages

If your port anchors its man tree somewhere other than PREFIX, you can use MANDIRS to specify those directories. Note that the files corresponding to manual pages should be placed in pkg-plist along with the rest of the files. The purpose of MANDIRS is to enable automatic compression of manual pages, therefore the file names should be suffixed with .gz.
