Description

I'm attempting to rebuild the 'whatis' database on my OpenIndiana hipster system.

I've discovered a particular man page for some local software (part of a perl module I installed) that causes 'man -w' to segfault:

$ mkdir -p /tmp/test/share/man/man3
$ cp -p /local/share/man/man3/Font\:\:TTF\:\:AATutils.3 /tmp/test/share/man/man3/
$ man -M /tmp/test/share/man -w
Segmentation Fault

I'll attach the man page that triggers the segfault. It's from the perl module Font-TTF-1.04, and was generated with perl's 'pod2man' command, from an older perl 5.18.1.
