    Is /usr/local/man in your $MANPATH environment variable?

    If you're using bash then:

    export MANPATH=$MANPATH:/usr/local/man

    should sort you out.

    You can put that line in /etc/bashrc to make it available to all users, or ~/.bashrc or ~/.bash_profile if you want it just for yourself.
