Thanks for doing this. I also started packaging it several months ago, but
instead starting using cawf instead.

cawf is the "Amazingly Workable Formatter" written in C. I imported it to
pkgsrc-wip months ago.

I made some customized macros and I have been using it as my systems man
page formatter for months too. It is not doing a good job. I wanted to use
it because of its friendly license and because it is small. If anyone can
help make or test macros so cawf (or awf) can work great, please let me
