NetBSD new-host 5.1 NetBSD 5.1 (BRAD) #0: Sun Feb 19 10:48:07 PST 2012
Using a particular macro package with groff, I had a document that generated
output that caused ps2pdf to exit with an error. As FreeBSD's ps2pdf had built
the document fine, I started looking for differences in the general build
environment. After a bit of work, I narrowed it down to the different "broken"
settings in /usr/share/groff_font/devps/DESC. On FreeBSD, they've defaulted
this setting to 7 which works around several problems.
Finally, in my case, I changed the Makefile to pass the following arguments to
which, in turn, forwards them to the grops command.
While this issue won't surprise too many people, I'd suggest enabling this
setting to ensure compatibilityNe with FreeBSD.
