Try running it with --debug and see if the output offers any hints.

There has certainly been some Hurd porting work done on man-db in the
past - I see some canonicalize_file_name() stuff lying around which is
clearly the effect of that. I've rewritten various things over the past
year, though, so it's possible that the port may have suffered bitrot if
I was being inattentive. Alternatively, I suppose it could be libdb2.
