You must have the groff source package.  Get this by at or newer versions
in the subdirectory devel/ there.  Extract the archive by

tar xzf groff-1.17.2.tar.gz -C /usr/local/src
cd /usr/local/src/groff-1.17.2/doc

There you can run the above commands.  They work on my computer.

I agree.  But the me manuals could also be installed by the normal
groff `make install', e.g. into <prefix>/share/doc/groff.
