Besides defining MANPATH (and the other variables such as INFOPATH and PATH which can be modified by the user's .bash_profile) /etc/profile also did export the MANPATH variable.
Now it does not and I suppose that user's skeleton file /etc/skel/.bash_profile should provide user-defined MANPATH pro-forma as an exported environment variable or else it will have no effect.
