	When I use a customized make.conf to install a customized base system (like with
	sysinstall) and define NO_CXX (because I don't need a compiler on a productive
	fileserver) I can't read man pages although I haven't defined NOMAN.
	It seems that groff is built together with the gnu compiler and should instead
	be built (and installed) depending on the NOMAN flag in make.conf.



 	Use a make.conf with NO_CXX=true and call 'man procfs' on the target system
 	after installing.
 	You'll see the error:
 	/usr/bin/tbl not found
 	/usr/bin/groff not found
