If I have a slackware or fedora box running one of the things I do 
post-installation is the makewhatis command as root.  Then if I want to 
search man pages for keywords man -k keyword will search the whole index 
and it's usually a good idea to pipe through less so you don't loose any 
potentially interesting entries.  slocate -u is another good command to do 
post-install on these boxes but on debian you'd do the updatedb command 
and makewhatis isn't necessary since the man pages index aparently gets 
managed by the debian packaging systems.
