Error executing man after kernel recompile


Hi,

I don't know why, but after recompiling my kernel and rebooting into my system, man no longer works, but gives this error message:
Code:
Error executing formatting or display command.
System command (cd /usr/man && (echo ".ll 8.1i"; echo ".pl 1100i"; /bin/gunzip -c '/usr/man/man1/su.1.gz'; echo ".\\\""; echo ".pl \n(nlu+10") | /usr/bin/gtbl | /usr/bin/nroff -S -mandoc | /usr/bin/less -is) exited with status 256.
No manual entry for su
I have no idea why this happens. If somebody could help me, I'd be very grateful.
