Bug Fix

BZ#448158
Prior to this update groff did not have full path commands in some places and used PATH variables when invoking external binaries. When opening a man page in a restricted shell environment the man page would not be displayed or an erroneous error message, "old character encoding and/or character set", appeared. With this update, groff now uses fully defined paths when invoking external binaries. As a result the man pages can now be displayed in a restricted shell environment.
All users of groff are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fixes this bug.
