Bug#2149: Bug, man/manpages testing suite/protocol.

System: Debian-0.93R6

Packages:   man-2.3.10-2.deb

Symptom: Numerous error messages when "compiling" the man files with:
         "groff -mandoc -Tascii *" (| or > ...)
         for each of the .../man/man? directories.

         (The groff "-" parameters are from the Linux Printing-HOWTO,
         section 2.6 "*roff, man pages".)

Bug: Is the documented groff command,
     with the documented man/manpages pertinent parameters,
     included in the testing suite/protocol
     for the entire set of man files/pages
     for each man/manpages release?


The above reflects the observations of myself only, unless stated otherwise.
