I wanted to install vile-pager as an alternative for view.
However, it doesn't seem to work very well anymore.
It uses vile-manfilt, which is not available anymore so it seems.

vile-manfilt is normally installed in $prefix/lib/vile/, e.g.,

continuing that thought - vile updates its $PATH so it can find the
executable there.  If it's not finding it, that's because the install
overlooked it for some reason (I'd check the packager's script for
that, though my Debian/testing has a copy installed as part of vile-filters).

It's not a built-in filter since it's usually used as part of a pipe
reading the output from other programs.
