Follow-up Comment #8, bug #62551 (project groff):

[comment #7 comment #7:]
> OK.  If we're correct, it's a little concerning that a TeX from a mere two
years ago can now prevent a successful groff build.

If that's the case, then I'm concerned, too.  On the bright side, building
from the distribution archive won't see this problem, because
doc/groff.{dvi,pdf} are already present in it.

rc2 hits the streets.

If people build straight from Git, yes.

But I was suggesting that maybe your TeX installation got messed up somehow.

Another possibility is that your installed version of Texinfo is exercising
some fairly recent feature of your TeX distribution.  This seems unlikely to
me, though.

It's worth noting that groff doesn't depend on TeX directly, but only via the
'texi2dvi' command.

More information would be good.  I've got successful builds going in a Debian
bullseye chroot with the following version of Tex Live.

$ dpkg -l texlive
|/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)

ii  texlive        2020.20210202-3 all          TeX Live: A decent selection
of the TeX Live packages
