Linux tunkmaster.lair 2.6.11-12mdk #1 Mon Jun 27 23:18:37 MDT 2005 i686 AMD Athlon(TM) XP 1800+ unknown GNU/Linux
When doing './ tools' on a linux machine, compilation starts, until it reaches the point where it starts to build groff. This fails, and build fails, because of a bug in groff. Relevant error is:

<standard input>:35: can't open `gnu.eps': No such file or directory

For discussion, see:

(on a linux box): './ tools' Watch it die trying to compile groff. 
I am no expert in gnu creations, maybe someone with more knowledge could help?
