Bug#4754: Missing geqn and gtbl symlinks

> Package: groff
> Version: 1.09-11

We had this discussion a long time ago when I still maintained X and
we agreed that the Right Thing(tm) to do is fixing xman.
xman assumes that linux uses groff & friends always installed with
g-prefix. As we decided to have them (more traditional) installed
wiht the standard names the tools have on all unix systems - well, we 
do not call ls gls either - all debian packages should take care of

BTW, didn't we have a groff 1.10 package? If not, are there causes not to
use groff 1.10?
