Currently, we have the PAGE environment variable set to "letter" encapsulated
with replaceable tags but the paragraph above the configure line may confuse the

We should either
1) remove the replaceable tags from the configure line 
2) set the PAGE variable to, for example, [paper_size] and modify the paragraph
  to "Groff expects the environment variable PAGE to contain the default paper
size. For users in the United States, this should be PAGE=letter. Elsewhere, the
PAGE=A4 may be more appropriate."
