This is a bugfix for our site.tmac file. Nothing else is changed.

$ zcat /usr/share/man/man1/groff.1.gz | groff -man -Tps > foo.ps

this you'd get an initial blank page in your output, and a warning:

grops:<standard input>:6: X command without `ps:' tag ignored

This was due to errant whitespace in our site.tmac file, as pointed out in:


Please sign off by testing a few manpages and, if you really want to go 
all out, test the commandline above and see the improved result.
