------- Additional Comments From alexander at linuxfromscratch.org  2006-01-18 21:42 -------
LFS explicitly states why it sticks with _patched_

Apply the patch that adds the “ascii8” and “nippon” devices to Groff:

zcat ../groff_1.18.1.1-10.diff.gz | patch -Np1


These devices are used by Man-DB when formatting non-English manual pages that
are not in the ISO-8859-1 encoding. Currently, there is no working patch for
Groff-1.19.x that adds this functionality.


So new versions of groff will be ignored. New Debian patches is what one should
watch for, and there is no groff_1.18.1.1-11.diff.gz yet.
