I ran into trouble when a make world of FreeBSD 5.1-CURRENT on a machine died.
A make world died after a install process with the groff:fatal error: can't find file.
A simple 'man' showed up the same error.

I downgraded to 5.1-RELEASE due to big problems with our SMP server, but I still have
no manpages!

I ggogled for this sepcific error and I found one solution, setting GROFF_TMAC_PATH and
GROFF_FONT_PATH by hand. But what wicked up the system? How to repair? Can anyone

Thanks a lot.
