[CentOS] Help finding the X man page.

I would like to tweak the way my gnome-terminals are coming up and the `man gnome-terminal` refers 
me to the "X" man page (specifically for --geometry).
Although I have found what is probably an adequate version on line[1] (from the x.org folks no 
less), I would like to have the man page from CentOS ON my system.

my yum foo is not doing so well...
$ yum  whatprovides \*/man7\*/X\*gz
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, security
No Matches found

and
$ yum  whatprovides \*/man\*/X\*gz
... is a bit overwhelming and did not seem to have what I was looking for.


further gentle clue-by-four available?
