extra wide long lines in man pages and other changes needed

The following are some long lines that need to be shortened because they 
are cropped in postscript output).

1) src/crypto/dist/heimdal/kdc/hprop.8

Convert a Kerberos 4 dump-file for use with a Heimdal KDC:
.Bd -literal -offset indent
$ hprop -n --source=krb4-dump -d /var/kerberos/principal.dump --master-key=/.k 
| hpropd -n

Right margin is at --master**

I already sent a patch upstream for this. And this is easy so I will

2) src/share/man/man8/man8.macppc/boot.8

.Bd -literal -offset indent

 NetBSD 1.6ZC (GENERIC) #0: Tue Sep 30 13:09:10 UTC 2003

(Margin starts at third "autobuild".)

Maybe just add a space before the HEAD. Or maybe there is some roff code 
to tell this to hyphenate.

Or I can simply shorted the line to:
That should be fine.

3) src/libexec/httpd/bozohttpd.8

To configure set of virtual hosts, one would use an
.Xr inetd.conf 5
entry like:
.Bd -literal
http stream tcp  nowait:600 _httpd /usr/libexec/httpd httpd -v /var/vroot 

(On a related note, this is the only manual page, at least in section 8, 
that has a different name than installed file.)

Also I had two more issues:

4) src/share/man/man8/man8.hpcmips/pbsdboot.8

.It Fl h
use serial console.check also serial port on.and connect your terminal with 
9600bps,8bit,non-parity,VT100 mode.

The above option description is unclear to me. Maybe punctuation problems?

5) src/usr.sbin/grfconfig/grfconfig.8 

.Bd -literal


 |        |                           !      |        |
 |        |\*[Le]=========== wid =========+=====\*[Gt]|        |
 |        |                           !      |        |

The \*[Le] is a less-than in man on console. But in postscript it is a 
less-than-or-equal character and causes the formatting to be off by one.

Is it supposed to be less-than-or-equal (Le)?
