Thanks for this info. Indeed, in Fedora core 3/4, they
  - replaced the "nroff" command with one that understands a
      --legacy CHARSET
    option, and iconv's the man page and groff's output,
  - hacked "man" to provide this --legacy option, based on the language,
    for example "EUC-JP" for Japanese. (Which makes it impossible to
    install an UTF-8 encoded Japanese man page.)
