: the man-cgi, man2web, and man2html "targets" are discriminated based on 
: how the "-P" argument is appended to the /cgi-bin/man-cgi URL, 
: suggesting to me that man-cgi is the binary, but under the hood there 
: are multiple programs that are launched.
: But then again I just downloaded an old (2003) copy of "man2web" 0.88 
: and a grep for man2html failed.
: A grab of "ManViewer" 0.9 from 2000 didn't help much, although it 
: appears to call man2html but there's nothing for man2web.
: hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
: Wonder if this exploit was tested on some custom installation.
: a mess, indeed...

For now I created an entry for each of the possible scripts, but I still 
can't figure out where 'ManViewer' comes into play beyond the comments of 
the various exploits.
