mandb - numerous parse failures on run (parallel, fribidi, numactl, pcre2, netpbm, etc..)
Working though the cleaning from the crash during 4.15.8 update, I came
across a number of man page problems which I thought were limited to the box
that crashed -- however, checking, they affect all my Arch boxes.
mandb will ultimately clean them, but I'm curious, is it just me, or does
this affect the distro in general. All my boxes are initial install 2016 or
# mandb --test
will disclose the errors, running mandb alone seems to fix them. In addition
to those listed in the title, the following are also showing errors:
emacs, gnuplot, inkscape, mjpegtools, cyrus-sasl and several others
Is this just something that is expected over time?

man-db.service is triggered by man-db.timer which should be enabled on your
system by default...
