What a name!  May I ask where you come from?

You are if you are saying `make dist' and *then* calling the configure
script from the created tarball.  Building directly from the CVS needs
more tools than the final tarball.  From the README:

  Depending on your requirements, you may need at least some of the
  following tools to build `groff' directly from its source:

    the psutils package
    the netpbm package
    texinfo 4.8
    bison >= 1.875b or byacc
