Yes.  David Dawes changed imake so that manpages could be preprocessed.
This is actually a good thing.  Ultimately it will enable us to get rid
of the stupid "<XRoot>" relic that appears in so many X manpages.

If the program in question was doing something subtle and/or clever, it
might be worthwhile to mail <xpert@xfree86.org> and ask for the best way
to handle it.
