When Solaris 2.x patches update something in a way that changes the
specification, one sometimes gets some sort of formatted man page
included in the patch directory, with a reference to it in the README.
I am thinking of things like the resolv.conf man page in the resolver
patches, or the ifconfig man page when new options were added to that.
But these are of only marginal usefulness. Why can't the patch update
the man pages in their proper place, as part of the SUNWman package?
Don't tell me [please, don't tell me] that the programs and the man
pages are maintained by different teams... :-*
