Thanks Tadziu, this makes sense, I'll use PDFPIC_NOSPACE for the groff variable and GROFF_PDFPIC_NOSPACE for the environment variable. The reason I want to include an environment variable is if we are changing the behaviour, there is at least a possibility a user has already many documents which have circumvented the bug in some way, I want to give the least work for them, adding one line to bash.profile is the minimal I could think of, and as PDFPIC already requires it to be run in "unsafe" mode the code to check an environment variable is fairly straight forward.
