I have tried to add the path /usr/local/bin/gcc/man and still not working. I also have tried to look for *gcc* in the /usr/man and /usr/dt/man but could not find any files. Maybe I need to "recompile" man page to get the dictionary updated ???

Any ideas if this would be the solution and if so, what command should i use to do?

/usr/local/bin/gcc/man doesn't sound right. Does the file /usr/local/man/man1/gcc.1 exist? If so, you should be adding /usr/local/man to your manpath.

Rachel,

You need to find where gcc is located. The example that given (/usr/local/gcc) was just that, an example. Your gcc may have been added to any of the filesystems. It may be in a gcc-versionnumber directory (this is again another example). Use find from / and search for "gcc*". Once you find the root path of gcc, then you should find the man pages.
