   If I do "less /usr/man/man8/named.8" everything looks fine, but
   when I do "man named" I get output that looks like this...

What do you mean with `everything looks fine'?  Do you already see a
formatted man page?  If yes, then named.8 is preformatted.  groff
expects an input file in troff format, not a preformatted file.

named.8 should then be moved to /var/catman/cat8/named.8 or something
similar; `man' will it then treat as a preformatted manpage.
