Did you check MANPATH after you set it?

There are two traps you might have fallen into:

1. If you have sh or bash as login shell, you need to use 'export' so that the environment variable gets distributed from the login shell to all subshells. I.e. export MANPATH=${MANPATH}:/usr/local/share/man/

2. Depending on your login shell the file to put the command into might have the name '.login' or (in case of bash) '.profile'

I'm pretty sure that if you had MANPATH set as intented you would have seen your manpage.
