It seems that a few packages (example: sysutils/findutils) want to use
nroff during installation, probably to generate man pages. On systems
that come with a native nroff this is not a issue, of course.
On IRIX 5.3 however, which SGI shipped without these text tools (I think
they used to sell them separately!) this fails.
One way to solve this is to simply add
(hey, the buildlink framework has grown really powerful over the last
year!). Strictly speaking I think on can say that this line is simply
missing in that Makefile. If I understand correctly how buildlink works
it should not have any impact on systems that already come with a native
nroff, does it?
Do you think it is OK to add that line?
