[PATCH] Make `makewhatis` FAQ entry explicitly refer to `whatis`
Fri Aug 3 09:09:00 GMT 2012
Minor FAQ patch below to make it explicit that `makewhatis` is used for
`whatis` as well as `man -k` and `apropos`. Inspired by someone [apparently
being confused] on Stack Overflow (yes, they were almost certainly being
lazy, but I figure being more explicit will do no harm).
I'm hoping this doesn't count as "significant" with regard to copyright
assignment. I'd really rather not have to deal with that tedium.
This is my first submitted patch; I *think* I've got everything right, but
apologies if not.
