Whoa!

There is a clue: open("/usr/lib/alliance/lib/tls/i686/sse2/libc.so.6", 
O_RDONLY) = -1


What this means is that package Alliance is somehow screwing things up!  
I removed
this and related packages and the man pages now works.  I also 
discovered that this also
interfered with system-config-services in the strace as well but did not 
actually restore
the normal working functioning but however, it does not hang any more.
Hmm...  I think someone needs to ensure that the Alliance package needs 
to be
re-examined as far as ensuring other programs do not break?
