I had very stupidly not gotten man java output. Even having, as in the book:

cat >> /etc/man_db.conf << "EOF" &&
MANDATORY_MANPATH     /opt/jdk/man
MANPATH_MAP           /opt/jdk/bin     /opt/jdk/man
MANDB_MAP             /opt/jdk/man     /var/cache/man/jdk

mandb -c /opt/jdk/man

Then included in my box:
# Adjust MANPATH
pathappend $JAVA_HOME/man MANPATH

Yet more stupid was including it in "cat > /etc/profile.d/openjdk.sh <<
"EOF"" in the book.

Then, I ran manpath:
$ manpath
manpath: aviso: $MANPATH setado, ignorando /etc/man_db.conf [warning:
$MANPATH is set, ignoring /etc/man_db.conf]

Removing, rebooting, got it right (reinstalled man-db without necessity).

$ manpath

Telling this, because ĸen tagged OJDK. If he only maintained all for
tagging and removed, no problem. But if it is there, you ned to fix my
mistake in your machine, ĸen. More apologies.

Already fixed the book: Committed revision 12811.
