It doesn't work like that.  The `all' target is used only for special
things which are not compiled in the normal sense.  You have to set
the `PROG' variable, and it accepts only a single name.

[Some checking...] Well, maybe it works, but since X now regularly
comes with updated fonts it is probably a good idea to install
xtotroff also, writing a man page, etc. -- so putting it into the
utils directory is a cleaner solution IMHO.
