Comment (by bdubbs@…):

 Major changes since man-db 2.8.2:

    Fixes:

    * Make seccomp sandbox allow madvise, since that's used by lbzip2.

    * Make seccomp sandbox allow kill and tgkill outright, since groff
      uses kill to pass on signals to its child processes.

    * Make seccomp sandbox allow sibling architectures on
      x86/x86_64/x32, since people sometimes mix and match architectures
      there for performance reasons.

    * Fix version check in locale macro loading to tolerate groff
      release candidates.

    * man now only changes working directory in child processes, so
      never fails due to being unable to change back to its original
      working directory.

    * accessdb, apropos, and lexgrog no longer emit spurious gettext
      headers in their --help output when localised.
