According to
two usual solutions are suggested:
 * Rename the man pages to slightly alter the suffix of the man page (e.g man1/check.1.gz and man1/check.1foo.gz)
 * Rename the man pages to include a prefix of the providing package (e.g. foo-check.1.gz and bar-check.1.gz)

Couldn't it be possible to rename the radius.conf(5) man page shipped with INN
to inn-radius.conf.5.gz?
Same thing for inn-radius.8.gz?

Perhaps other man pages can also cause problems like history(5), inews(1), ident(8), domain(8), expire(8)... ?
