Thanks for the new release!

Here are two things which I’ve noticed while packaging it for Debian:

• using LN="ln -sf" results in an absolute symlink for the whatis.1
manpage, which we need to then change into a relative one to prevent our
tooling from choking on them:

• The following lintian warning indicates a spelling error:
  I: mandoc: spelling-error-in-manpage usr/share/man/man7/mandoc_roff.7.gz
parantheses parentheses

That was easy to change.  1.14.2 (release not yet planned)
and 1.13.5 (to be released soon) will do it the way you want,
see below.

Fixed in OpenBSD and bsd.lv HEAD and VERSION_1_13.

Thanks for reporting!

Thanks for the quick response. Only afterwards I realized that the relative
symlink technique also needs to be applied to the remaining symlinks, i.e.
not only for manpages but also for programs such as makewhatis:

It's not as simple as that.  With you patch, makewhatis ends up in the
wrong directory, in /bin/ rather than in /sbin/ where it belongs.

To fix that, i considered writing sh(1) code in ./configure to parse
both paths and construct a relative one from one to the other, using
tools like dirname(1), basename(1), readlink(1), wc(1), cut(1), ...

But then i realized that's probably a bad idea.  It is complicated
and can cause portability issues, and it's just not worth it.  In
almost any sane configuration, the basename(1) of BINDIR will be
"bin", and BINDIR and SBINDIR will be located in the same parent
directory.  If that is not the case is some very unusual configuration,
i decided to tell people to specify BIN_FROM_SBIN together with
BINDIR and SBINDIR - it's rarely needed and easier to do for a human
than for a POSIX shell.

Thanks to both of you for reporting the issue!

Yours,
  Ingo
