I'm using gentoo and Igloo told me today on #gentoo-haskell:
< MarcWeber> Do you have man ghc on your gentoo system?
< MarcWeber> I don't.
< Igloo> It doesn't come with the source 6.6, although I think it will with 6.6.1
< Igloo> No idea if Gentoo is meant to have it or not, though

Thats why grepping the source code didn't help me find the man pages.
If I had had man ghc I wouldn't have complained at all.
I agree with Igloo that they should be delivered with ghc source, shouldn't they?
Simon, the man page which you've attached is totally sufficient.

I apologize for making so much noise.
