But, to make sure it was Groff 1.13:
- copied test-groff to test-ver
- edited last line of test-ver, "exec ...", to ".../groff -v"
- ./test-ver  --> GNU troff version 1.13

I removed the ~/bin/bin dir made by "make install".
./test-groff still worked. Then piped ~/bin/man/man1/grohtml.1 to it.

Lesson: no need to run "make". Please read top line of test-groff.

Does this mean the .tar.gz includes binaries already?

Where is the documentation on the HTML macro set?
.../doc/ and exit (and I've used them in recent years)
but I can't find any user docs on the brand new HTML macros.

I want to start porting to the new Groff HTML support,
but I need some user doc. as will all others.
