according to the man-db[0] homepage all/most other major distributions
use a more actively developed manpage suite called man-db, while we only
ship this:

In a package of mine, "man -l" is used to create a plaintext version of
the manpage, which seems to only work with man-db. Could this be a
Feature for F14 to use man-db instead of man or are there major reasons
not to do this? 

Btw. I cc'ed man-owner at fpo.
