Ugh, this would be pretty messy for distributions, as we'd have to move
glib into the base installation (at least I believe that most
distributions have groff in base but glib outside base).

I guess that is not your immediate concern, but it seemed worth bringing
up, as groff is an important part of a free Unix system.

For Debian requiring glib for groffer in particular would not be a
problem, as groffer isn't currently in the part of groff we put in the
base system, but other distributions may differ here.
