Description of problem:
nroff fails when /tmp is read-only. I often need to read some man pages while
rescuing a system with read-only root filesystem :). A buffer in bash can used
instead of the temp file if /tmp is read-only.
Also, in most cases when both input and output charsets are utf-8 it's
unnecessary to invoke iconv, and a process can be saved for groff.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. remount ro /
2. man man
man works ok
