mksh manpage

Hi everybody,

The shells/mksh manpage uses custom troff macros (for compatibility
between different versions of the mdoc(7) package) and looks fairly
weird, if viewed using man(1).

However, nroff -mdoc /usr/pkg/man/man1/mksh.1 produces readable output.
After talking to the mksh authors, we concluded that this is probably
the result of using mdocml, which does not implement the entire *roff
macro set.

How should this be fixed? Strip the "special stuff" from the manpage and
add a patch for platforms that need it?

Best regards,
