An attempt at a patch that addresses the problem.

A declaration like

@groupdef mygroup My Group

generates a man page that displays as

       My Group -

This is badly formed and causes manpage-has-bad-whatis-entry warnings from lintian.


A better and more compliant rendering would be:

       mygroup - My Group

An attempt at a patch that addresses the problem is attached.
