Check your MANPATH variable in your shell.  Or for system-wide settings, 
look at /etc/manpath.config (Debian, other distros should have something 
similar).  If the RANCID man pages are installed in 
/usr/local/rancid/man/man*, adding /usr/local/rancid/man to your MANPATH 
will fix this.  By default man in Debian looks for man pages in:

(Edit your .profile/.bash_profile to set MANPATH or edit the system 
files to fix it for everyone.)

Good luck.
