well, in potato its been quite annoying to tell people to rtfm and
have them say they can't because `bash: man: command not found"  then
again in woody there shouldn't be much of anything the user has to
rtfm about before getting the rest of the system installed... (yaboot
was the problem in potato).

i still tend to think man-db in the initial base makes sense.
