Certain versions of fontconfig (upstream) included the TeX GYRE fonts as
suitable options for (some of) the base postscript font names.

The GYRE fonts use names like /f_i for the ligs, not like /fi.  They do
so better to ensure than the text can be un-ligated when selected or
otherwise converted to text.

Groff, of course, expects the glyph names used by the original Adobe fonts.
And it is right to do so.

Fontconfig has since removed mention of the GYRE from those sections of
the default configs.  Distributions will catch up eventually.
