mandb behavior

I was working with CentOS 5 and I was noticing some what appear to be
functional regressions in F14 mandb:

1)  In the centos configuration you can specify manpaths with wildcard
expansions.  Example:  /opt/*/man would specify all man subdirectories
in /opt.  In F14 this no longer works.
2) In F14, directories specified in the MANPATH environment variable
seem to be ignored.

Are these intended?
