'man man' 'man pacman' and other manpages located under /usr/share/man don't work under tcsh shell.

The problem is in /etc/csh.cshrc. There is a section named 'Set manpath' which sets the MANPATH variable has not been defined yet. 'man' then gives priority to the environment variable instead of /etc/man.conf.


* remove or comment the 'Set manpath' section of /etc/csh.cshrc

Steps to reproduce:

* pacman -S tcsh
* tcsh
* man man
This task depends upon

I don't know why but 'man man' works here in tcsh. I'll still remove the section though as MANPATH shouldn't be set. Thanks for reporting it.
