gear-1.6.0-alt1
man-1.6f-alt7

The references are misprinted: "geasrpmimport", "geamerge" etc.

Examples:

$ man gear-rules | tail

       Authors and contributors of the programs included in the gear package
are listed in the manual  pages  for  these  pro
       grams.

SEE ALSO
       gear(1), geasrpmimport(1), geaupdate(1), geaupdattag(1).

                                 GEARRULES(5)

Sorry, it was a problem of the older man-1.6f-alt7, it's OK with
man-1.6f-alt11.
(Will it make sense for gear to conflict with the old wrong "man" package?)

I'd rather fix gear manpages to use properly quoted dash symbols.
------- Comment #3 From 2009-12-14 02:03:55 -------
I mean something like this:
http://git.altlinux.org/people/ldv/packages/?p=gear.git;a=commitdiff;h=1.6.0-alt1-24-g237dc6d

The idea is obvious: if a manpage references to another manpages, all these
references should be usable as is.

Invoking "man" under LANG=ru_RU.KOI8-R is essential for reproducing this bug;
it's not there under ru_RU.UTF-8.

I see; thanks for the explanation!
