The man pages aren't recognized; "man qhost" says "No manual entry for qhost." My $MANPATH includes $SGE_ROOT/man on both machines, and $SGE_ROOT on the execution host is just $SGE_ROOT on the master host through NFS.

Do the permissions for the directories include the x flag and not only r?

drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K Jan 13  2010 man1
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K Jan 13  2010 man3
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K Jan 13  2010 man5
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K Jan 13  2010 man8
