:  Did you try 'man wait'?  That would have pointed you to 'man bash', where

Did /you/ try it?

It complains about not finding bash.1.
Do you have a copy of bash.1 lying around somewhere?

To get this to work as I think it is intended, I need to:

1) gunzip /usr/share/man/man1/bash.1.gz and
   /usr/share/man/man1/bash_builtins.1.gz

2) patch /usr/share/man/man1/bash_builtins.1 like so:
--- /usr/share/man/man1/bash_builtins.1~	2005-10-15 21:27:52.000000000 +0200
+++ /usr/share/man/man1/bash_builtins.1	2005-10-15 21:44:33.770000000 +0200

3) re-gzip /usr/share/man/man1/bash_builtins.1, but not bash.1


For some reason it doesn't work with a gzipped bash.1.
(A bug in man? It looks like it doesn't gunzip in this case.)
