Nice manpage! Some comments:
- recive -> receive
- ip-to-tp -> ip-to-ip
- I'd put a dot before "you will find a contact list".
- swich -> switch
- Maybe "and swich chat buffers between them" is not very easy to
  understand. I would change it to something like: "You can switch among
  chat buffers using the keys shown on the contact list."
- I think you should make some reference to the /help command. Something
  like: "ipchat is self-documented. Use the /help command."
- "ipchat now support" -> "ipchat now supports"
- I see somewhat extrange that "ipchat is written in C".
- In the AUTHOR section, could you add something like "See the AUTHORS file
  for a complete list of contributors.".
- Don't know if a COPYRIGHT section should be added. 

Maybe Angshuman, who I think will join the list soon, or Robert, may help
a lot more with our english :-)

BTW: Maybe some of you don't know how to watch the manpage without installing
it. Just run: man ./ipchat.1

When you commit the manpage, I'll have automake install it in user's machine.

See you!
