[Man-db-announce] man-db 2.11.2

I've released man-db 2.11.2.


man-db contains an implementation of the man command, which is the
primary way of examining the on-line help files (manual pages).  Other
utilities provided include the whatis and apropos commands for searching
the manual page database, the manpath utility for determining the manual
page search path, and the maintenance utilities mandb, catman and
zsoelim.  The package requires a troff installation, such as groff (GNU
troff) to format and display the manual pages.

About this release


 * Fix compile and test failures when `troff` is not `groff`.
 * Fix segfault in typical uses of `man` when `nroff` is not installed.
 * Fix crash in `mandb` when processing stray cats.


 * Check for stray cats even if no manual pages in a given manpath were

For full details, please see the ChangeLog file in the source
