Scratch that (shouldn't change MANPATH). My current workaround is a  
symlink:

sudo ln /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.4/lib/ 
python2.4/site-packages/ipython-0.7.3-py2.4.egg/share/man/man1/ 
ipython.1.gz /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.4/man/ 
man1/.

But it seems leaving man pages "in the egg" in the first place is  
less than desirable.
