Please note that I have noticed several errors in the man page for rpm.
The error is present on every line that ends in a hypenated word. In each
case the hyphen is preceeded by a captial A. Please consider this example:
rpm is a powerful package manager, which can be used to
build, install, query, verify, update, and uninstall indiA-
vidual software packages. A package consists of an
archive of files, and package informatio, including name,
version, and description.
This is a problem with man and/or groff, not rpm. Changing component to groff.
This seems to be ok with the newest groff rpm.
