Follow-up Comment #2, bug #63757 (project groff):

  I do not see a report about a bug in the DESC file.

1) The file "configure" consults "/etc/papersize" among others to set

  The only defect I see, is that "locale -k LC_PAPER" is not consulted
before "/etc/resolv.conf".

2) "papersize(5)" (Debian) states that the first valid string is used
(by the libpaper library), meaning: only one paper size is used.

There can only be one default paper format !

2) The "devpdf.am" only checks the value "$PAGE" for "A4" instead of
using its value, if defined and not empty.

2) I do not recommend, that users redefine the content of
They should use the "-P-p..." option for "groff" for their own
_personal_ choices.

3) The need to include "/etc/papersize" for "gropdf" (in gropdf.am) is
not explained.

  The report looks line a proposal to change something affecting every
user for the sake of a single person, which should instead use an
available resource (solution) for a special case.
