Hm, I thought the fix was

  mv /usr/local/lib/erlang/lib/man /usr/local/lib/erlang

- i.e. the "man" directory should be directly under the toplevel install
directory, not under toplevel/lib. At least that's the way the FreeBSD
port installs:-), I can't seem to find any instruction as to where you
are supposed to unpack the man tarball...
