Yes however you also need to add /usr/local/lib/erlang/man to
your MANPATH.  Do `man man` to figure that out.

The problem with doing this is that there are conflicts with
the system man pages.  If you put the Erlang/OTP man pages
first in the path you'll get them.  If you put it last you'll
get the system ones when there are conflicts.

You can specify the MANPATH on the command line:

	man -p /usr/local/lib/erlang/man erts

You might want to leave MANPATH alone and create an erlman
shell command using the above.
