Nuh-uh.  Our assert.h is there in case the host system's is inadequate.  (ANSI C assertions were pretty anemic.)

You maintain your own personal branch of groff, which you do not disclose in your bug reports, and you have a history of inadequately cleaning your working copy amid (often ill-advised) local changes.

Paul Eggert is a competent developer and had no trouble building groff, as the thread reveals.

I will close this as invalid unless someone else can reproduce this problem.

Subject: withdraw src/include/assert.h

  This file caused a compilation error when I updated "gnulib".

  See
https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-gnulib/2022-09/msg00100.html
(14th September) and later.

  To avoid such occurrences the header files in "groff" should be updated
with the corresponding "gnulib" header files or removed to use the system
ones if applicable.
