Ah, the old implicit MANPATH trick. Clever.

o This is my situation (and yours is probably similar):
o I have bsd tar in /usr/bin/tar and bsd tar manual
o in /usr/share/man/man1/tar.1 . If I type "man tar" I get bsd man , but
o if i run tar i get gnutar, just like you. Here is the explanation:
o enrico at esoel:enrico$ echo $PATH                       
o /opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:/sw/bin:/sw/sbin:/Users/enrico/bin:/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/X11R6/bin
o enrico at esoel:enrico$  dpkg -L tar |grep man
o enrico at esoel:enrico$ which tar
o /sw/bin/tar
o Fink path comes before system path but fink (gnu) tar doesn't have a
o manpage.

o PS Pay attention to your dependencies... and to your paths ;-)
