There may be something jacked up in my install but I'm running 22.
It was installed by the portage tools on gentoo emacs.  Might be a bug
for the installer or something.  I have had older versions installed
way back.

(wrapped for mail)
Its a symlink to what appears to be the proper man page for 22.1
ls -l /usr/share/man/man1/emacs.1.bz2
lrwxrwxrwx [...] Dec 22 12:47 \
                /usr/share/man/man1/emacs.1.bz2 -> emacs-emacs-22.1.bz2
