darcs help environment says:

    Darcs will sometimes invoke a pager if it deems output to be too  
    to fit onscreen.  Darcs will use the pager specified by $DARCS_PAGER
    or $PAGER.  If neither are set, `less' will be used.

"sometimes" is vague, it would be better to be more explicit here

Also, I expected "darcs changes" to react to these vars but it didn't.

Hi Simon, please file a separate bug for darcs changes reacting to PAGER
and DARCS_PAGER.  See also issue896
