For INN-2.3 BETA 20000511,

the .OLD manpages that are kept around as ~news/man/*/*.OLD after a make
update are confusing to FreeBSD (4.0)'s man command, as it finds both and
displays both:

man -d inn.conf


trying command: (cd /usr/local/news/man ; /bin/cat
/usr/local/news/man/man5/inn.conf.5.OLD | /usr/bin
/tbl | /usr/bin/groff -S -Wall -mtty-char -man -Tascii | /usr/bin/col |


trying command: (cd /usr/local/news/man ; /bin/cat
/usr/local/news/man/man5/inn.conf.5 | /usr/bin/tbl
 | /usr/bin/groff -S -Wall -mtty-char -man -Tascii | /usr/bin/col | less)
