GCC 10 has switched from -fcommon to -fno-common as a default, breaking 
compilation with the current release of mandoc:

	compat_getline.c:5: multiple definition of `dummy'; 
	compat_err.o:mandoc-1.14.5/compat_err.c:5: first defined here

When multiple unneeded (ie HAVE_* is set) compatibility files are 
included in a compiler invocation, the dummy declarations 'int dummy' 
clash with one another.

Ordinarily I would have sent a patch along, but I am not sure what 
solution is preferred here. I can think of the following:

  * Simply have a unique name for each dummy declaration per file.

  * Make sure that unneeded compatibility files are not included in the 
    build. This seems a decent albeit more complex and disruptive 

I tried checking whether the development branch has this fixed already, 
but it seems that the CVS web interface [1] is down at the moment (500 
Internal Server Error). I also sadly couldn't check out the CVS:

	cvs [checkout aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if any)

There were no previous messages, and I don't know how to make CVS more 

I did not find anything through a cursory check of the mandoc-source 
mailing list archive, so I'm assuming this issue is still present.

Thanks for your time!
