One wonders who "I" is here (that's not helful, for doc), but in any

value? That default value, even if hard-coded, would be better for
Windows users than the actual default value of ("/usr/man"
"/usr/share/man" "/usr/local/man"). There is more chance that a
Windows user has Cygwin installed than that the Unix directories will
