I know this has been closed but I just wanted to check this with you all.  
(Note, I wrote this in between Gerard assigning the bug and closing it ;-))

just for the record; this is the relevant code I believe:

from src/man-config.c

char *default_config_files[] = {
     CONFIG_FILE,               /* compiled-in default */
     "/etc/man.conf", "/etc/man.config",
     "/usr/lib/man.conf", "/usr/lib/man.config",
     "/usr/share/misc/man.conf", "/usr/share/misc/man.config"

CONFIG_FILE gets defined in paths.h (from paths.h.in) as:
#define CONFIG_FILE "/usr/share/misc/man.conf"

so we can either just make sure we move the file away or alternatively 
couldn't we just pass a -D option in or sed paths.h to make it more correct?
