Description Eric Raymond 2006-12-22 00:18:24 EST
Description of problem:
The command synopsis markup of authconfig(8) is a mess -- it violates
some of the standard conventions for synopses.  This doesn't matter
much when the Mark One Eyeball is doing the reading, but it plays
hell with attempts to parse the syntax for translation purposes.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run doclifter in an attempt to lift the manual page to XML-Docbook.

Actual results:
doclifter barfs.

Expected results:

Additional info:
Fix patch attached.  Patch also visually groups the options, making the
pile a little easier to read.
