I've been battling this all day. When I attempt to "./ tools" it 
gets to...

install ===> groff

... then ...

install-info --info-dir=/usr/src/obj/tooldir.NetBSD-1.6U-i386/info 
install-info: 1: Syntax error: "(" unexpected
*** Error code 2

Any idea what might be going on?

Here's what I've tried:

. Gave up on updating with -u. Did "make cleandir"
. Tried the suggestions for groff in the UPDATING file...
		cd share/mk && make install
                 cd src/gnu/usr.bin/groff
                 make MKMAN=no dependall install

. Tried removing /usr/obj altogether. (now grasping at straws)
. Tried removing tooldir, share, obj and updating from cvs again.

No Luck.

Do I have to delete /usr/src/ and check it out again? Please tell me "no"!

Any help would be fantastic, Thanks,
