I don't know ... :-) The first thing I did was a ebuild of glibc.2.2.1 and afterwards 'man' worked. I *think* I issued ldconf by hand before to make man work, but could not swear on that. And /etc/ did not get updated by env-update, however, the /usr/lib/gcc-lib/.... entry is in it. /etc/ did get updated, though.
