hi there !

I compiled LFS-CVS-20020826 today.
I added X11 and all works fine.
even loadkeys doesn't get miscompiled.
Now I have a problem with the output format of my man pages.
BTW, to be honest I installed readline-4.3 right after ncurses.
Could this be related to my man problem?
Or could it be related with the new groff package? (1.18)
Or does anybody know what's going on with my man-pages?

thanx in advance


Here an example of 'man syslogd':
SYSKLOGD(8)               Linux System Administration              SYSKLOGD(8)

       sysklogd - Linux system logging utilities.
