What platform are you using? They work just fine for me on various Linuxes
using 'man ./mvdocs.8' etc. You have to specify the path and the full file
name if they aren't installed in your MANPATH. Hence the './' prefix and
'.8' suffix. Or just move them into /usr/man/man8 or /usr/local/man/man8
or /usr/share/man/man8 etc. depending on your platform.
