Probably the windex file. You can rerun the Install script or run the
script it will call to format the manual pages
% cd /usr/local/lib/erlang/lib/
% ./misc/format_man_pages `pwd`

man2 is system calls, I don't think we should define any ;-)
man5 is file formats, I don't know if we have separate manual
pages for any file formats in Erlang/OTP,
