OpenBSD (and NetBSD and Minix) use mandoc instead of groff for
formatting manpages: http://mdocml.bsd.lv

Mandoc aspires to be bug-compatible with groff, but is not yet
perfect, especially with man macros (as opposed to mdoc macros).

The OpenBSD ports framework has an option for individual packages to
use groff instead, and nmh is one of them. I don't know how this
buildbot works but you might consider using the OpenBSD nmh package as
a base. This would also handle the autoconf versioning automatically.

Yes, these are local changes in the linker. I don't know of any way to
disable them.
