Subject: Debian's more is /bin/more, not /usr/bin/more
Date: Sat, 25 Apr 2015 16:16:08 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <mhg7j9$aj3$> (raw)

Just a minor annoyance, but anyway...

# download & install mdocml...
$ man ls
man: exec: No such file or directory
$ type man more
man is /usr/local/bin/man
more is /bin/more
$ PAGER="more -s" man ls
# manpage is shown correctly

Until we solve /bin vs /usr/bin (cough gobolinux cough , how about 
defaulting to "more -s" instead of "/usr/bin/more -s"?

Regardless, the error message wasn't really clear - could you replace
     fprintf(stderr, "%s: exec: %s\n",
         progname, strerror(errno));
with something like
     fprintf(stderr, "%s: exec %s: %s\n",
         progname, argv[0], strerror(errno));
