Dear Miklos,

If so, I need to re-phrase the question: how and where from and in
what form can someone get hold of the new binary.

E.g. those, like me, still on the original Mac groff diet, without
compilers, etc.  Do I have to upgrade to Tiger, do I have to get
whatever compilers, etc and running make on sources or a .dmg file
needs to be downloaded/installed.

... 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.

Look for Xcode on your OS X discs (or download it free from Apple).
It will give you gcc + nice GUI optionally riding on top of it.
After that you may compile unix software all by yourself or
use the compile instructions from a porting/packaging system
(like Fink or Darwinports).

If you need the latest development version, the description of
groff in, say, darwinports can be changed to download and compile
whatever tarball you want (or pull sources from CVS).

   Sincerely, Michail
