Aah, I misunderstood you.

I can't answer this since I don't have a Mac.  It's probably easiest
that you tell us the exact version of your OS, and a good guy on this
list builds groff for you so that you can simply install it.

On the other hand, I have the impression that it is not too difficult
to install the GNU C and C++ compilers together with the necessary
utility programs, given that OS X and successors are basically a Unix
system with a nice surface.  What about the `Fink' distribution?  Once
you have all necessary programs installed, it's very easy to build
groff from the CVS:

  tar xzvf groff-current.tar.gz
  cd groff-current
  make install
