pdfroff accepts *all* groff options, in addition to a few special
ones of its own.  All the standard ones are passed transparently
to groff, in each pass; the only exception is -T dev, which will
force an abort, if dev != ps.

I think you should be able to just s/groff/pdfroff/ at the
appropriate points in your Makefiles, and so save yourself a lot
of leg work.  Do note however, that pdfroff emits PDF directly,
without saving the intermediate PostScript output, so it will
only be appropriate for PDF targets, and ps2pdf isn't needed.
