I noticed the following.  /etc/man.conf contains:

_subdir         {cat,man}0p {cat,man}1 {cat,man}1p {cat,man}8 {cat,man}6 {cat,man}2 {cat,man}3 {cat,man}5 {cat,man}7 {cat,man}4 {cat,man}9 {cat,man}3p {cat,man}3f {cat,man}n
1               /usr/{share,local/share}/man/{cat,man}1
1p              /usr/{share,local/share}/man/{cat,man}1p


% MANPATH= MANSECT= man -w find

It should prefer find.1 being first in list.

(I think MANSECT is ignored anyway, but it would be nice to have
support for this variable.)

Reproducible with mandoc 1.13.3 and CVS HEAD on Void Linux.
