It's what Clem said. You should acclimate yourself to your environment.
Pushing info into man environment is a lot like being an immigrant and
wanting to bring your laws into your new homeland. That isn't a thing
and shouldn't be a thing. Doesn't matter that people think ITS is better,
they are in Unix. If you think ITS is better, go live there.
