Sounds more like there's a circular (sym)link somewhere in the man
hierarchy? FWIW, 'apropos mt' works fine here:
CrtItemType (3tk) - define new kind of canvas item
CrtPhImgFmt (3tk) - define new file format for photo images
Net::Cmd (3pm) - Network Command class (as used by FTP, SMTP etc)
Net::SMTP (3pm) - Simple Mail Transfer Protocol Client
SetRecLmt (3tcl) - set maximum allowable nesting depth in interpreter
ilbmtoppm (1) - convert an ILBM file into a portable pixmap
lispmtopgm (1) - convert a Lisp Machine bitmap file into pgm format
mt (1) - control magnetic tape drive operation
mtools (1) - utilities to access DOS disks in Unix. TQ
mtools (5) - mtools configuration files TQ
mtoolstest (1) - tests and displays the configuration TQ
mtr (8) - a network diagnostic tool
