I have never seen Man Hunt but I have looked at ManTrap and was
not particularly impressed. It looked to me like a rather bloated chroot
implementation of a honeypot under Solaris. The implementation left a
little to be desired however, for example there are genuine (belonging to
the Solaris box) devices in /dev. 

It may have changed since I saw which was over a year ago.
