When running a bash shell in rxvt and doing a man page I get weirdalias man='LANG=C.ISO-8859-1 /bin/man'
characters in man pages especially around the often used "-" character.
I've read about a few solutions, most revolving around UTF-8 and less
and none of them fixing the problem totally. How do I set up rxvt such
that man pages work?
* Update groff (with setup.exe) for a man page fix.
* alias rxvt="LANG=C /bin/rxvt"
* alias rxvt=urxvt
* alias rxvt=mintty
