I have that error too. The problem is that e.g. on Ubuntu the MANPATH is by
default set to empty. And empty means it looks for the system-wide setting
of the MANPATH. When GMXRC sets it, the system-weide setting is ignored.

The solution is to set it to MANPATH=":/path/to/gromacs/man"

Thus with the additional colon at the beginning. Does this additional colon
break it for any non-Ubuntu platform?
