I'm not sure what the correct category for this is, so I'm filing it
as "misc/sw-bug".  It manifests itself in the installation docs, but
my guess is the root cause is a bug in some groff macro.

The CONTENTS section of the various INSTALL.html files contain links
to the actual sections; these links use anchors whose names are
derived from the section titles.  The problem is that long section
titles are truncated in the "A HREF" but no in the "A NAME", causing
those links not to work.

This affects several architectures including i386 and sparc.


with a web browser.  Click on the line "Issues affecting an upgrade
from NetBSD 2.1 and older" in the CONTENTS section near the beginning
of the file.  Notice how nothing happens.
