It'd be useful to have a way to add to the subdirectories mandb searches when it finds an executable of the same name in PATH. By default this seems to be man/ ../man share/man and ../share/man. If you could set something like ADDPATHSUBDIR ../doc/man in /etc/man_db.conf, that'd be very useful.

See http://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html/man-db-devel/2014-11/msg00004.html for related discussion.
