=You=, personally, might not, but the manpage formatting
glarp generally understands /usr/man or /usr/share/man as
having "common" manpages and /usr/local/man as having
the local stuff.  I've yet to see a system which had all three
of those as separate directories with all three needing to
be scanned.

This isn't to say someone hasn't made such a system, only
that I've not seen one (which means that Glarpnix will be
coming out next week with precisely that arrangement ...)
