If you arrange for them to be in ../share/man or ../man when the private
bin directory is in $PATH, they will automatically work. (This assumes
there is a private bin directory and not just versioned binaries in
/opt/local/bin. For something like mysql, there are going to be enough
private binaries to make this a good idea.)
