Description of Problem:
The latin1 and latin2 man pages fail

How Reproducible:
man latin1

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man latin1
2. man latin2

Actual Results:
"realpath on `man7/iso_8859-1.7' failed: No such file or directory"

Expected Results:
a latin1 man page

Additional Information:

There's a typo in the latin1 and latin2 man pages which causes man to
fail with the error "realpath on `man7/iso_8859-1.7' failed: No such
file or directory".  This patch corrects the problem.  The man pages
should be uncompressed first.  They're so small that it really makes
no sense to recompress them.

Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-05-29 16:27:58 UTC
No typo... latin2 contains iso_8859_2.7, which contains iso_8859-2.7, which is
the file you're looking for. This is a groff bug.
