Which ones? That sounds like they should be fixed...

Ah, I did not really make a complete list of such pages. But I have a
somewhat partial list (after failing so many times, I decided to just
update the man pages)
I think most of them were in /usr/share/man4/<arch>/*
Also some pages caused failure int /usr/pkg/man/man3/ or so.

Following was the error message:

$ mandoc /usr/share/man/man4/atari/floppy.4
assertion "' ' != buf[*pos]" failed: file
line 282, function "mdoc_argv"
Abort trap (core dumped)

This has been fixed in the CVS version of mandoc, to which joerg@ has access.
