Reconsidering, now that I've actually looked into it a bit (stupid me)
-- the issue is that we've redefined the .Fx macro in groff to say
DragonFly instead of FreeBSD.  I see three (well, four) options here:

1) Revert the .Fx macro to FreeBSD, add a new macro for DragonFly
(.Dx?), and update the instances that should be DragonFly.

2) Add a new macro for FreeBSD and use that for historical references.

3) Hardcode the historical references as 'FreeBSD' rather than using a

4) (bad option) Leave them alone.

I'm new at groff, so I don't consider myself qualified to make the call
here.  Anyone?
