Description Frank W. Josellis 2006-02-22 22:20:01 UTC
Just a tiny  problem, but it makes the man page look damaged. Please note
that running `make` already executes `nroff -man xephem.man > xephem.1` in
${WRKSRC}. Thus xephem.1 is a formatted man page (i.e., cat page) which
should not be installed in ${PREFIX}/man/man1 because `man xephem` will 
later attempt another formatting. The result isn't really enjoyable.


Adding the line

       @${CP} ${WRKSRC}/xephem.man ${WRKSRC}/xephem.1

to the pre-install target should work.
