Description

It appears that many of the current man pages are not properly parsed
by the 'mandb' program used in recent versions of Fedora. (Reference
issue #1407) While attempting to adapt the distributed RPM .spec file
to use mandb, I came across these errors (the output of "mandb
$SGE_HOME/man")

I think the errors are harmless, just due to the use of .so instead of
soft links to the pages which have multiple names. Is there any problem
looking up the relevant pages subsequently?

I should get round to having distinst make links instead.
