Hi Thomas,
dear colleagues,

the file man/form_field_opts.3x in the latest ncurses release (5.7)
contains a syntax error:  According to groff_man(7), the .TP macro
must be followed by a line of text, to be used as a label, so
putting it right before .SH is wrong.

While groff(1) just ignores the problem, mandoc(1) aborts compilation
and prints an error message, so i needed to fix this in the OpenBSD

Certainly not a big deal, but it would be nice if we could keep in sync.

Thank you for maintaining ncurses!
