installing new man pages

I am having problems installing new man pages on a FreeBSD 3.3 system. They are the man entrys for a new software that I have installed and I would like them to be searchable from man. I have run Make whatis and tried to adjust the manpath.config. I also have played with catman but I think the pages are already in the right format.

Is there a simple tutorial on some web site to give me a little help? I think I am close there is just some key information or concept I am missing.

Thanks,

Jim

Try www.freebsd.org - loads of documentation and links -
Check the man page on man and recheck your MANPATH variable. Good luck.
