Ah, but without having the path to the man page (in my case here on
sonic, /opt/extra/wget-X.XX/man/) in my $MANPATH environment variable,
"man" still doesn't know where the man page is, even if I give it "-w" ;^)

% man -w wget
No manual entry for wget

But, of course, if I put the correct path in $MANPATH, it works as above
(just with that weird "/opt/extra/..." path :^) )

Thanks, though!
