groff(7) describes the .rfschar request as: "Remove the definitions of entities c1, c2, ... for font f."  The Texinfo manual, however, describes it as "removes glyph definitions defined with 'fschar' for glyph f."

Since "glyph f" makes less sense in this context than "font f," I presume the info manual is the one in error.  Attached patch fixes this.
