Put the man pages in /usr/man, e.g. /usr/man/man1/tcsh.1 for the tcsh
man page.  Under AIX 3.1.10, /usr/lib/makewhatis can be used to update
the makewhatis-database /usr/man/whatis so apropos and whatis know about
the added manpages.  /usr/lib/makewhatis should be available on all 3.2
versions.

For AIX 4.x, you can store the man pages in the /usr/share/man hierarchy.
/usr/lib/makewhatis is still there.
