Description Thomas Nilsson 2003-03-26 14:50:12 UTC
When upgrading man, /etc/man.conf will include:

CMP		/opt/bitkeeper-3.0.1/cmp -s

which isn't a good idea. Sure, I won't probably remove bitkeeper from my system
anytime soon, but for man to use that cmp version could present unwanted
confusion when bitkeeper is removed.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Comment 1 Evan Powers 2003-05-26 23:26:42 UTC
This seems to happen because the configure script for man scans $PATH to find 
cmp, and records this in /etc/man.conf. 
The BitKeeper ebuilds modify the environment so that BK commands are in the 
$PATH, but /opt/bitkeeper-${PV} ends up placed before /usr/bin. Consequently 
/opt/bitkeeper-${PV}/cmp is referenced in /etc/man.conf. 
bitkeeper-3.0.1-r2.ebuild, bug #21638, resolves this bug.

I just added bitkeeper 3.0.2 with the changes suggested by Evan Powers in bug #21638. Please test and let me know if it fixes this bug.
