FYI.

This means that the troff test in the File package is not
"broken". I see no reason to update to the latest version.
I also cannot see using the patch I wrote, but I will put
a 'sed' in the instructions to fix the man page so that
the correct --exclude tests are identified.

Well, both the fortran test and the troff test have been
converted to soft tests. I have removed them from the doc
and changed token to tokens.

Thanks,
