Man pages broken

    When I try to look at a manpage from openssl, e.g. man sha256 I get:

    FSUMF061 Cannot format /usr/local/ssl/man/man1/sha256.1

    Using the file command: file /usr/local/ssl/man/man1/sha256.1 I get:

    /usr/local/ssl/man/man1/sha256.1: nroff, eqn, or tbl text input text

    When scanning the rocket ported tools for files which are nroff, eqn, or tbl text input text
    I see that most if not all man pages from php, openssl, libssh2 are not usable.

    A possible fix from my side is to dowload the man page to my laptop (using ascii conversion) and run something like:

    mv openssl.1 openssl.1.bad
    groff -mandoc -Tascii openssl.1.bad > openssl.1

    and then upload to the z/OS host.
