I have no plans to work on this for the reasons in comment #1 but someone else is welcome to take it; setting to postponed.

There's no particular reason to expect an in-tree *.man file to be a renderable man(7) document; they all undergo transformation to produce (what should be) valid, renderable pages ending in .[157].

Similarly, groff_man.7.man.in is an m4 document and not even close to a valid man(7) document.  (It undergoes two stages of transformation.)

Subject: [PATCH] src/preproc/grn/grn.1.man: use a unique character for the

  "@" is both used as a tabulator character and as a part of a string
constant "@g@" in a table.

  Change the tabulator character in the table from "@" to "#".
