System: NetBSD 4.0_BETA2 NetBSD 4.0_BETA2 (GENERIC.MP) #5: Mon Jul 16 13:56:51 EDT 2007 i386
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
	The man pages for the subcommands of openssl(1) are installed in
different locations than the openssl(1) man page points to (in "SEE ALSO").

	Look at the "SEE ALSO" section of the openssl(1) man page.  Realize
that the section-1 man pages listed there don't exist [by those names].
	The problem appears to be in lib/libcrypto/man/  It
searches for these specifically to do a replacement on the text, so that
the resulting man pages will mention openssl_FOO(1) for each FOO(1).  However,
the regexp being used does *not* match the output from pod2man.  It should be
easy to fix, and if you'd rather me send a patch, I can craft one.  Perhaps
someone who knows pod2man better would be better to do that.
