navigating Solaris default man pages sucks

Solaris man pages are using more.

So to change to less, set PAGER environment variable to less:

$ export PAGER="less"

Update August 18th '07

# export PAGER="less"
PAGER=less: is not an identifier


so i use,
`PAGER="less"; export PAGER`

    Also the top hit for "solaris sucks, man"! If only the solaris container I'm using had 'less' installed.
