Just a thought, but maybe adding an entry to /etc/manpath.config would
be more distribution agnostic?

Appending this should do the trick:

MANDATORY_MANPATH            /usr/local/coda/share/man

Good idea.. Well, not actually linking them and creating
files outside /usr/local/coda/, but simply telling
people that they can call 

	man /usr/local/coda/share/man/man1/pagename.1

I'll add it later today.
