Pointing man pages to different location [closed]

http://stackoverflow.com – In my environment, I am installing a different SSH server other than openSSH. When I issue a man ssh command, for example, I want it to point to the new ssh server man page, rather than the openssh man page. The only way I have seen to do it so far is to physically copy all the man pages from the new ssh server to the /usr/local/man directory. Does anyone know of an easier/cleaner way to do this, such as a configuration file to point man to look the new man entries where I would provide a directory? (HowTos)
