You are right. Looks like "::" are already correctly translated to "."
$ man Compress::Raw::Bzip2
Using the original
$ /bin/man.exe --version
man, version 1.6e
and not my new version 1.6f.
As I understood it, version 1.6e converted "::" to "?", and it did not
work me that time.

* (src/manfile.h, src/manfile.c): replace the : reclacement
char ? with . to sync with perl on win32.
Lets put that aside.
But maybe move man.conf from /usr/share/misc to /etc
Thanks for checking!
