Same as you downloaded from somewhwere the three binaries, you need to
download the man pages, and copy them to the correct paths.

/my/installprefixshare/  is intended as a place holder. You replace that
name whith the place you installed them. It could be
"/usr/share/man/man1/...", or more properly,

Similarly, the place for the binaries would be "/usr/local/share/bin/"

(in a normal Linux)
