qpdf's don't work for me.

But I added the `-P-y -PU' into the actual git-groffer in mode
`--pdf'.  So the suitable code will be called automatically.

I could not do that for the `groffer ' mode `--pdf2', which uses
`groff' mode `ps' and generates `pdf' with `ps2pdf'.  There
the ligature error still exists.  As the pdf-mode of `groff'
improved, `groffer --pdf2' seems to be no longer necessary.

How about appending the `-P-y -PU' in pdf-mode also for the new
coming `grog'?
