Thankyou for the explanation.

I added mdoc/ja.UTF-8 for Japanese manpages after installing
groff-1.22.4. To do that, I took mdoc/ja.eucJP from FreeBSD ports
ja-groff (groff-1.18.x) and converted it to UTF-8. I did not know to
profix doc- to the symbol, so I used it as it was. It seems that there
was a problem there.

Sorry for taking up your time.
