Recent on-line manual pages introduce an error, writting
"exempli gratia" (Lat.) as "eg" instead of "e.g.".  I recommend
changing all the occurrences of "(eg" to "(e.g., "  (do not miss
the comma and the space!).  This is a list of the affected man pages:

  bzip2(1)        objcopy(1)      req(1)          ssh(1)
  issetugid(2)    wscons.conf(5)  groff_ms(7)     packages(7)
  mlxctl(8)       rpc.statd(8)    i386/boot(8)    vnode(9)
  autoconf(9)     config(9)       ioctl(9)

Reading those man pages. Older ones (for example the VAX driver
pages) use "exempli gratia" as expected (e.g., as in this example).
Changing the source of the on-line manual pages in the cvstree.
