Installing man - problems?

After "configure -default" during installation of man-1.5i I get the
col command: missing
vgrind command: missing
grap command: missing
pager command: missing
cat command: missing
gawk command: missing
gunzip command: missing
bzip2 command: missing
pcat command: missing
fcat command: missing
unyabba command: missing
Which made me wonder, because I we've installed some of the programs.
IMHO the problem is in the way the configure looks for the programs. If
I've analyzed it correctly it looks for all the files in $DEFPATH, which
is set using the following construct:
for i in /bin:/usr/bin:/usr/ucb:/usr/local/bin:$PATH
case $i in
echo "DEBUG: $DEFPATH"
The DEBUG-echo was added by me to see the output - and I get:
DEBUG: /bin:/usr/bin:/usr/ucb:/usr/local/bin:/bin /usr/bin /sbin
later another for-loop is used everytime a programm is searched for.
Setting DEFPATH="/bin /usr/bin /sbin /usr/sbin" finds some of the
executables, but that's not as it was invented to be...
Anyway I am too tired to fix the script myself now - perhaps there are
some experts who figure that out outta there.
