Another, perhaps less intrusive/time consuming alternative is to
change the TROFF and NROFF lines in /etc/man.conf with:
TROFF /usr/bin/groff -S -Tps -mandoc
NROFF /usr/bin/groff -S -Tascii -mandoc
(that is, add the -S switch)
-S Safer mode. Pass the -S option to pic and use the
-msafer macros with troff.
