/awf, Text formatter (nroff-clone) written in awk
19900907nb1, Package name:
awf-19900907nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users
This is awf, the Amazingly Workable Formatter -- a "nroff -man" or
(subset) "nroff -ms" clone written entirely in (old) awk.
It is slow and has many restrictions, but does a decent job on most
manual pages and simple -ms documents, and isn't subject to AT&T's
brain-damaged licensing that denies many System V users any text
formatter at all. It is also a text formatter that is simple enough
to be tinkered with, for people who want to experiment.
Type "make r" to run a regression test, formatting the manual page
(awf.1) and comparing it to a preformatted copy (awf.1.out). Type
"make install" to install it. Pathnames may need changing.
I don't know whether awf will run on 16-bit machines. Data requirements
are modest, but I fear the programs are probably big enough to run awk
out of space.
I can't believe I really wrote this.

Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for textproc category
Problems found locating distfiles:
Package cabocha: missing distfile cabocha-0.68.tar.bz2
Package convertlit: missing distfile clit18src.zip
Package php-enchant: missing distfile php-enchant/enchant-1.1.0.tgz
Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden). All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.

Removed the superfluous "quotes" and 'quotes' from variables that don't
need them, for example RESTRICTED and SUBST_MESSAGE.*.

Point MAINTAINER to pkgsrc-users@NetBSD.org in the case where no
developer is officially maintaining the package.
The rationale for changing this from "tech-pkg" to \
that it implies that any user can try to maintain the package (by
submitting patches to the mailing list). Since the folks most likely
to care about the package are the folks that want to use it or are
already using it, this would leverage the energy of users who aren't
