Yes, I do.

Thanks.  Anyway, I have to update grn to something newer since at
least two people get a segfault with the code from

Well, I probably would have encountered that segfault as well, but for the fact that we patch Groff with Debian's which happened to fix this up in the same way as does! Unfortunately, the patch was described as just adding nippon and ascii8 devices to Groff - I didn't catch the other smaller fixups that were in there.

After removing that fix and the gcc-4.1.x fix, there's still a couple of hunks in it that look unrelated (to my completely novice eye) to the Nippon/Ascii8 device stuff. Unfortunately, I can't find a broken out patchset that describes all the changes that are in there. I'm thinking specifically of the creation of temporary directories in eqn2graph.sh and pic2graph.sh.

Would you mind taking a look at http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/~matthew/patches/groff- (379KB!) to see if there's anything there you could merge upstream?
