[erlang-questions] Erlang manuals problem when installing from Homebrew

I've installed the R14B02 to a fresh machine with no previous versions
using Homebrew. Everything works good, but "erl -man" seems to be

Hombrew is default-configured, so the structure of
/usr/local/Cellar/erlang/R14B02 is the following:

AUTHORS    README.md  bin/       lib/       share/

So, the binary files are placed into
/usr/local/Cellar/erlang/R14B02/bin and the man pages – into

As far as I understand, when I call "erl -man", it tries to search at
some other location, not at the one I provided. I tried to add this
location to MANPATH, but result was the same.

Where does Erlang search for the manuals and is there a way to
configure these locations?

Best regards,
