Yeah, I got that just after I hit send on my reply. ;)

I don't have any simple answer for you.  I've never had such a problem
with man pages.  I would look at your root environment to ensure that
you haven't set some variable (like the aforementioned MANPATH) which
is messing up man usage as root.
