'man mib2c' displays the wrong manpage

Bug Description

The command 'man mib2c' displays the manpage for mib2c-update instead of the mib2c manpage. I have viewed the mib2c manpage on the net-snmp project website, and have verified that it should be very different from the mib2c-update manpage.

Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS.
