      Description

      The Solaris SUNWj6man package is empty, no
      man pages at all, and has been that way since
      b96 back in August.

      The self extracting Solaris bundles have the
      correct man pages (and names) as does all the
      linux bundles and rpms.

      This is just Solaris packages (SUNWj6man)

      I suspect when the above putback was done, there
      wasn't a corresponding update in the install
      workspace to tell the SUNWj6man about the file
      renames, and unlike the linux makefiles, the generation
      code for SUNWj6man wasn't smart enough to follow
      the changes.
      Japanese man page package SUNWj6jmp is also in the same situation. Please also make sure to take care of this package.
