I'm using pdfmom, but don't know if that makes a difference in how things work. 
 My builds of groff and ghostscript are pretty much vanilla.  I turned off the

The system is custom built, best described as a cross between Linux from 
Scratch and CRUX.  I built groff (version 1.22.3) from source.

I'm not sure of the format -- the font files don't appear to have a 
distinguishing suffix.
