If anyone has successfully recompiled groff for an XP environment, could
you please let me know what changes in the makefile are necessary?
Note the entries in v2gnu/
2137063 Jun 18 2000 00:00:00 gro116b.zip
1989132 Jun 18 2000 00:00:00 gro116s.zip

The version in gro116b.zip yields segfaults when I try to use it, while
it worked fine on my Win95 machine.
My attempts to recompile have been a disaster.

Sure have. It's available for download as one of the zips in the DJ204
alpha 1 release.

See the following announcement from 27-Apr-2003:-
http://www.delorie.com/djgpp/mail-archives/browse.cgi?p=djgpp-announc...

Here is part of my build batch file for building groff-1.16:-
cd %DJGPP_ROOT%\GNU\groff-1.16
set CXX=gpp
if exist makefile make distclean
if not exist makefile cmd.exe /c arch\djgpp\config.bat
if not exist makefile goto grofferror
make clean
make
make install
goto groffend

:groffend
set CXX=

If you want the complete batch file that was used to build all of the
alpha packages (except for DJ*.ZIP) follow the link at www.delorie.com
to the unofficial W2K / XP page. The DJ*.zip files were built by
Andris.
