manpath [-qgdc?V] [-m system[,...]] [-C file]
If $MANPATH is set, manpath will simply display its contents and issue a warning. If not, manpath will determine a suitable manual page hierarchy search path and display the results.
The colon-delimited path is determined using information gained from the man-db configuration file - (/etc/manpath.config) and the user's environment.
-m system [,...], --systems=system[,...]
The system specified can be a combination of comma delimited operating system names. To include the native operating system's manual page hierarchies, the system name man must be included in the argument string. This option will override the $SYSTEM environment variable.
