On a RHEL4 system:
$ PAGER=cat LANG=C man Xcursor | head
XXX WARNING: old character encoding and/or character set
On a RHEL3 system:
$ PAGER=cat LANG=C man Xcursor
iconv: illegal input sequence at position 205
The request is for man not to error out if the man page isn't the right
encoding, not to fix the Xcursor man page.
This request is a groff problem.
