  Log Message:
  dist-docs: Fix text and HTML manpage generation with some groff versions.

Some versions of groff use termcap sequences for bold, italic, etc. by
default.  The dist-docs script doesn't cope with those; it expects
sequences based on backspacing and overprinting.  This commit fixes the
problem by setting an environment variable GROFF_NO_SGR that forces groff
to use backspacing.

Found on Fedora.
