Description

GNU/FreeBSD man has -w option, which allows to get actual manpage location.
For example:

$ man -s 1 -w man
/usr/share/man/man1/man.1.gz
$ man -w man
/usr/share/man/man1/man.1.gz

It would be good to have similar options. Unfortunately, -w switch is already used in our man...

You could use -d here.

I've created script to parse man -l output, but having -w option would allow to drop one yelp patch.
