nroff bench deleted for brevity

The solaris 2.2 nroff is not the same nroff as the solaris 1.1 nroff.
That is where the time difference lies. To help make the comparision
more meaningful, you should compile groff and utils on both OS's
natively, and then try the test again on the csh man page. The nroff
in 1.1 is a very old one, while the 2.2 one is the current documenters
workbench one. (provided my bad memory serves me correctly, anyone
know for sure?)
