System: NetBSD 6.99.49 NetBSD 6.99.49 (LANFEUST) #47: Sat Jul 26 13:48:38 CEST 2014 amd64
Architecture: x86_64
Machine: amd64
Checking xorg.conf(5) man page, i found that a few keywords were not substitued
as they should to be. This include "__xconfigdir__", "__sysconfdir__",
"__datadir__", "__modulepath__" and "__xkbdir__".

A few other XOrg man page exhibit the same problem :

find /usr/X11R7/man/man* -type f | xargs grep -l __ 

njoly@lanfeust [X11R7/man]> find /usr/X11R7/man/man* -type f | xargs grep __   
/usr/X11R7/man/man1/resize.1:.TH RESIZE 1 "__app_date__" "__app_version__" "X Window System"
/usr/X11R7/man/man1/resize.1:sets this to "__default_termname__" if not already set.
/usr/X11R7/man/man1/sessreg.1:.BR __lastlog_file__ ,
/usr/X11R7/man/man1/sessreg.1:.BR __utmp_manpage__ (5)
/usr/X11R7/man/man1/startx.1:.if '__SCOMAN__'' .ig
/usr/X11R7/man/man1/startx.1:.I __libdir__/sys.startxrc
/usr/X11R7/man/man1/startx.1:.if !'x.__SCOMAN__'x.' .ig
/usr/X11R7/man/man1/startx.1:.if '__SCOMAN__'' .ig
/usr/X11R7/man/man1/startx.1:.I __libdir__/sys.startxrc
/usr/X11R7/man/man1/xinit.1:.B "xinit \-\^\- __bindir__/Xvnc  :1"

find /usr/X11R7/man/man* -type f | xargs grep __
