Is there a place in tlmgr, where this -R
could be missing?
No. We don't explicitly invoke less, or any pager.
Or is something weird with my local setup?
That's my guess, although I don't have any good ideas about what it
could be. It works for me; with PAGER=cat, I get plain text, with
PAGER=less (or more) I get formatted text as expected.
All we actually do with --help for these Perl scripts is invoke the fn:
pod2usage(-exitstatus => 0, -verbose => 2);
where pod2usage is doing all the formatting. Maybe in its doc will help
you track down what's happening?
