XDrawArc man page maths come out bad on tty

The following bug has been reported to the Debian BTS 2 months ago by Kevin Ryde.
On a tty, the eqn math bits in "man XDrawArc" come out looking like [x+wi2th,y+hei2ht] or 2n for normal-angle in the range [32,2n] which makes it pretty hard to understand.
Apparently gnu eqn and/or nroff aren't interested in trying to render maths on a tty. It'd be nice if XDrawArc could have alternative bits (".ie n" conditions) that come out better, "[x+width/2,y+height/2]" and "[3pi/2,2pi]" etc.
