Is that the NaN issue? Or something completely different?

AFAIK this is a bug somewhere in the toolchain. pic and some other
executables are created with some completely bogus entries in some
relocation section. But I'm totally clueless about that toolchain stuff,
and even Matt seems to have no idea where that comes from.

It is interesting to note, though, that groff are one of the few pieces of software written in c++. But it seems only to be pic that is affected, and I've only ever seen it with the version built as part of the build.sh process.
Have anyone seen it anywhere else?
