/usr/man before /usr/share/man in MANPATH (Attn: man maintainer)

Since the FHS mandates that man pages go into /usr/share/man, shouldn't it
precede /usr/man in the MANPATH?  I ran into this issue because I had kept
a backup copy of the old rxvt man page (the one with YODLTAGSTART, etc),
and, since it was in /usr/man and the new rxvt man page is in
/usr/share/man, the old backup was found first.
