  'man -k' looks for two whatis databases, the default
  (/usr/share/catman/whatis) and one in a directory specified by the
  environment variable LANG. If LANG is set but empty, the paths come
  out the same and you see the same database twice. Fix the problem by
  doing 'unsetenv LANG' or 'setenv'ing it to something sensible.
  This is not an issue in IRIX 5.3.

  This can also happen if the old Irix 4.0.x database is left behind
  after upgrading to Irix 5.2. Fix the problem by removing
  /usr/catman/whatis.
