Here are some hints for those of you having trouble compiling either
libg++ or groff.

1. Make sure all your sources are up to date

2. Reinstall your include files.  (especially sys/cdefs.h, as it
   disables gcc's format __attribute__ when using g++.  G++ doesn't
   understand the format __attribute__ yet).

3. Remove all the include files from /usr/include/g++ and reinstall
   libg++.  (The NetBSD include files are allready C++ safe.  Some
   libg++ headers were replacements of system headers, this caused
   problems where they were incompatible with ours.  These
   compatibility headers are no longer installed.)

4. Reinstall groff.
