Bug#5335: man manpages in german refer to a different man package.

Package: manpages-de
Version: 0.1-5
Maintainer: Martin Schulze <joey@debian.org>

I'm very sorry to raise this bug, but I discovered it answering to a
user request about whatis database. I launched man whatis on an xterm
where the LANG was set to de_DE, and then I changed xterm because I'm
not able to read german.

The difference between the two pages is so evident (the german one
refers to a makewhatis command) that I tryed with every manpage of the
man package:

manpage		de_DE		it_IT
man 1		wrong version	wrong version
manpath 1	no page		no page
apropos 1	wrong version	wrong version
whatis 1	wrong version	wrong version
zsoelim 1	no page		no page
manpath 5	no page		no page
mandb 8		no page		no page
catman 8	no page		no page

I checked also spanish and french, but there aren't pages in section 1.

The solution to this bug is very easy, because the upstream man package
contains the correct manpages translated in german.
