I have a problem where lpd core dumps
If I issue the command
man -t -man ...|lpr -t
lpd core dumps
on the line printjob.c (line 580)
if ((av = rindex(prog, '/')) != NULL)
av = prog;
The reason it core dumps is the variable prog is NULL.
It is supposed to point to the TF (troff filter) program.
This points to 2 bugs.

familiar with the NetBSD/FreeBSD organizations.
2) I am using a fairly vanilla version of Redhat 4.0 Linux. I

documentation I looked through. Is there a troff filter I
can use? Is it part of Redhat? Or is there a flaw in the
