The first warning is unrelated to the font installation
problem, which, IIRC, we established was the result of the
'gsfonts-other' package not being installed.  Perhaps Colin would
consider making gsfonts-other a dependency for the groff-base and
groff packages?

The second error results from a missing -k flag when processing  That's been fixed.  A fresh build from the latest
sources doesn't emit the warning.
