The problem is not that groff can't find the fonts since we can view the
ESB.pdf with the braces fine. Since the fonts are not embedded in the pdf,
because the fonts used are included in the pdf base fonts, the problem is with
the actual pdf viewer.

In comment #1 I suggested producing the pdf with the fonts embedded, but I
have not heard whether that was successful. Just in case I have attached a pdf
with the relevent fonts embedded. It would be interesting to find out whether
the viewer will show the braces correctly.
