Hmm, I do have /usr/local/man on my manpath, and it did indeed have
man1/bash.1, but I don't know if that affected things.

It seems like man can cope with a .so that points to a .gz if that is the
only line, but has problems if the .so points to a .gz when embedded in
remaining text.  I'm not familiar enough with man to know what is going on
here, but it does seem like a man issue.  Meanwhile, I can distribute
bash.1 instead of bash.1.gz since that is all that works with the current
version of man.
