Thanks.  Can you please refine your patch so that this #define is only
used for affected gcc versions?  In the groff ChangeLog file,
`input_iterator' is mentioned the first time in 1990, and James Clark
has always used gcc for building, AFAIK.  gcc 2.95 appeared in July
1999, and I've started to work on groff in May 1999, so there has been
a chance that I've used 2.95 also, but I can't remember that I've ever
seen this problem on my GNU/Linux box.
