well, i thought about that for a moment, and i wasnt able to come to any real

1) i have only one box that is running STABLE, and its my x/kde workstation.
this is also my only computer with half-broken man pages.
2) i have several production and development servers (no desktops), and they
are all RELENG.  all my releng boxes have working man pages.

what do i need to check between my working releng and my stable workstation to
find the difference in why the stable has broken mans?

seems to me that those are missing):

sysinstall -> Custom -> Choose Distributions -> Custom and check the
