	Upgrade mysql5-server, look at mysql_fix_privilege_tables(1)
	man page, find it deprecates mysql_fix_privilege_tables and
	points to mysql_upgrade(1). 'man mysql_upgrade' comes up

	Look closer and find that most of the man pages are not


	Install all (relevant) man pages that come with the

 Log Message:
 Refresh the lists of man pages. Closes PR 38998.

 (Because of the partitioning into client and server packages, the man
 pages have to be partitioned to match; this interferes with the
 configure script's handling of them so the list of pages ends up
 hardcoded in these patches. And it seems the lists haven't been
 updated since the first mysql 5.x package.)

Fixed for mysql51-*. mysql55-* and mysql56-* have a different build system
and do not appear to be affected by the underlying problem.
(the mysql5-* packages for mysql 5.0.x were removed a long time back)
