That is by design. Support for the base.dir param has not yet been
implemented for manpages output. In fact, there is not support yet
in the manpages stylesheet for *any* user-configurable parameters.

But there will be in the next stylesheet release. I recently
checked in some of the litprog infrastructure parts needed for
auto-generating docs for manpage parameters. Now I just need to
start actually implementing support for the parameters. The first
two will be params to toggle hyphenation and right-justification.

If you want support for base.dir to be added, please file a
manpages enhancement request at Sourceforge.


And just to be clear, you mean the manpages/docbook.xsl stylesheet, right?
