Same results as   groff -stp -mm -X somefile   i.e. the output
gets trashed pretty badly. That makes sense, as -Tps is the
default. I guess I'll stick to ghostview for now.

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind.

Hmmm. Call me an unwashed heathen, and leave it at that.
Troff I know, or can easily re-learn, and I'm a firm
believer in eating your own dog food.

That would be texi2roff, no? Groff to texinfo would be good --
maintain the groff info in the format that it deserves, and
convert it to make the FSF happy. :-)

Thanks for the help!
