I was just recompiling ORBit 2 from GNOME CVS, because of a suspected
bug in it, when I was reading this. So, naturally I'm offering to adopt
these. Concerning nroff and man pages: No, I don't know nroff by any
means, but I've been able to produce man pages in the past by just
looking at other pages.

(If someone more competent steps up and wants to take these packages,
I would be more than glad, though.)
