     . Copy the new stuff from NEWS to and adjust it to be
       valid groff code.

     . Say `make' to generate `webpage.html'.

     . Copy `webpage.html' to,  manually adjust the links to the
       two images, then replace the old with the new version by renaming
       it to `groff.html'.

     . Copy `groff.html' to

   Of course this could be automated somehow, but I was too lazy to do

Hmmm...why not take the text from NEWS and insert it into the html
file?  This would seem less complicated.  I'm not completely happy
with the markup that groff puts out for this purpose.

   What shall the *groff* configure script do?  Shouldn't this be rather
   something in the *man* configure script?

The removal of the escape characters, etc., for a compatible output
with OpenBSD's default, (this would be a configure option).  For
now, I guess a simple note (to the INSTALL file) that man -R needs
to be set globally to the system profile.
