I don't know if this is a bug or intended behaviour.
It certainly is not specific to 1.13.5rc1.

On systems where I don't have root (mostly linuxes),
I often install mdocml as a manpage formatter of choice into $HOME,
and alias 'man' as 'man -m $HOME/man' for some third-party software
which I can only install in $HOME.

Everything works as expected, except man -l

  $ alias man="man -m $HOME/man"
  $ man -l /usr/share/man/man1/ls.1.gz
  man: -m /home/hans/man: Bad argument

  $ unalias man
  $ man -l /usr/share/man/man1/ls.1.gz	# works OK

Should -m be ignored with -l, just like -M path and -s section?
