Follow-up Comment #2:

This later got reported again to the groff mailing list and I forgot about
this ticket (I knew I'd seen the problem reported somewhere before, but failed
to search the ticket tracker).

I'll update the ChangeLog entry.

    doc/doc.am: Cope with Mac OS X.
    * doc/doc.am: Make sed-based insertion of `lf` requests more portable: a
      dance is required to embed a literal newline inside a sed expression
      inside a shell command executed as part of a Make target rule.  We
      assume that neither the POSIX shell $'' operator nor a working
      printf(1) is available.
      (DOC_GROFF): Define a shell variable containing a literal newline,
      evading make(1) and echo(1)'s valiant attempts to consume it.
      (doc/pic.html, doc/webpage.html): Repeat trick, slightly modified
      since the dependency needs to be manually identified.
    Solution adapted from the GNU Autoconf manual, "Newlines in Make
