Description Boris Folgmann 2003-09-24 13:55:28 UTC
Description of problem:
some man pages are damaged and can't be displayed

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. type "man fclose" or "man fcloseall" in the shell

Actual results:
$ man fclose
iconv: illegal input sequence at position 2277

$ man fcloseall
iconv: illegal input sequence at position 2281

Expected results:
format and show man page

Additional info:
rpm -V man-pages says that all files are ok.
Other man-pages are ok, but of course I didn't call all of them, so there may be
more that can't be displayed.

I suggest to add a check target (make check) for the Makefile if one exists
which checks all man sources if they can be formatted before you release a new
man-page rpm.
