Not serious, but: /usr/src/ObsoleteFiles v1.112 contains


When it should contain gzipped versions of those two
files.  My machine (Current 22 Sep 2007, awaiting reboot)


So running a "make delete-old" will not entirely remove files
associated with cached in favor of nscd.

	Look in /usr/src/ObsoleteFiles, if you have v 1.112 (or
	later?).  Note that other manpages in ObsoleteFiles are
	listed as gzip'd.  Wish silently that all your problems
	were as complicated as this.
	Append ".gz" to the two cached manpage lines mentioned above.
	Consider running "rm /usr/share/man/man?/cached.*".
