Sorry about that.  I couldn't figure out how to get a literal
quotation mark in there, but more to the point, it would have
been better to just say something like

	.B /lib/*
	.BR /lib64/ .


So, um, yes we can avoid the nonportable quote mark style, and
it even would make the page a little better.

I'll reroll once reviewing v1 stops seeming fruitful.
