if the packages become part of 'groff' why not add a 'make docs'
and generate them on request ?
and other option is adding this to a 'make check' so it can double
as output test for the compiled system.

providing dcos in roff only is bad because people that start using groff
may have no idea how to generate the required formats. ans they never
read any documentation :)
