Follow-up Comment #58, bug #63808 (project groff):

Your first attempt has the correct configure messages, this one is wrong. In
scenario 01 (ghostscript only) gropdf will be in standard mode with the
default foundry only populated, so it is correct to say that the U- foundry
will not be available in a configure message. If you undo whatever you changed
for the second run and run make, you should be looking for these things:-

A message from configure the URW fonts are not found.
No warnings from BuildFoundries.
Only the default foundry groff fonts (base-35 plus EURO).
check-default-foundry has passed.
check-urw-foundry is not run/skipped.
All pdf docs produced with no unexpected warnings.

If all the above then it is a successful run, 

It really concerns me that I see configure is looking in the ghostscript
directory for urw-fonts, it must not.

Any fonts supplied by ghostscript do not include .afm files so the U- foundry
can't be built, and the missing URW fonts message should be output and
@urwfontsdir@ should definitely not be set.
