Description of problem:
'man ed' in Japanese environment is crazy.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. LANG=ja_JP.eucJP
2. man ed
3. Oops

Actual Results:  Error message:
/usr/share/groff/1.17.2/tmac/docj.tmac:57: can't find macro file `mdoc/common'
/usr/share/groff/1.17.2/tmac/docj.tmac:58: can't find macro file `mdoc/syms'
troff: automatically ending diversion `eB' on exit

Additional info:

zcat /usr/share/man/ja/man1/ed.1.gz | groff -Tnippon -man | less

works well, though.
Comment 1 Nakai 2002-08-08 04:26:27 EDT
Using doc.tmac instead of docj.tmac will provide
a better behavior, but not complete. So please apply
this patch for Milan.
