This didn't work

$ man sh#Builtins
No manual entry for sh#Builtins

but maybe it should be the same as running
MANPAGER="less +/^\ *Builtins$" man sh

Another approach would be if ctags/gtags could be generated from the `.Sh` and `.Ss` section headings in the nroff source, then `less` could just jump to the tag.

As a test I tried to manually generate a tags files, but unfortunately `less` seems to have trouble with tags in stdin.
