No response regarding the hard coded search values.  David wrote:

   Generally this is set in users' .cshrc startup files. We have a
   global /usr/local/etc/ file which defines environment
   for all users, and this is sourced in each users' .cshrc file at
   the beginning. MANPATH is defined here, and then users can add
   to it if they like in their .cshrc file.

Run format, choose read from the analyze submenu.  Rinse and repeat.

Thanks to David Foster <> and Hindley Nick
<> for the responses.
