Quite simple.

>From "man man":

     -M path     Specify an alternate manpath.  By default, man uses
                 manpath(1) (which is built into the man binary) to determine
                 the path to search.  This option overrides the MANPATH envi-
                 ronment variable.


     MANPATH     If MANPATH is set, its value is used as the path to search
                 for manual pages.
