But that can be covered at a later date. The actual "support" for this
is simply unsetting MANPATH. If a package installs man pages to
/usr/man/man1 it will still be looked up just fine.

The makepkg 3.1 will no longer move man pages to /usr/man, so I don't
think we should do any moving until that is out the door.

Could you explain to me how the symlink will help? It seems like, to
me, we're just going to confuse the crap out of pacman when it tries
to install/upgrade. With the current implementation, man pages will
work regardless of where they are.

Hahah, I didn't even think about that! That's hilarious.

I assumed it moved raw pages, not the whole dir tree.
