Same here - until I realised that I still had /usr/X11R6/bin in $PATH,
left over from the days before /usr/X11R6 was a link to /usr/local.
Removing /usr/X11R6/bin from $PATH fixed it for me. According to the
man page for manpath it "tries to determine the user's manpath from a
set of system defaults and the user's PATH".
