Terminal. You should get output like:

$ echo $PATH
$ echo $MANPATH

Namely PATH should include /usr/texbin and MANPATH should include /

before and after Leopard at <http://www.uoregon.edu/~koch/LeopardTeXFix.rtf 

Personally, I also added in /etc/manpaths.d a file II2 containing the  
single line

installation of man pages to the default Leopard location /usr/local/ 
share/man, but in the older i-Packages man pages are still placed in /
