Yes.  Something in your setup is incorrect.  Starting with groff
version 1.17, font directories are no longer in <prefix>/groff/font
but in <prefix>/groff/<version>/font (by default, <prefix> is
/usr/local/share).  Maybe you have missed this?  Or maybe you have two
clashing groff versions installed simultaneously?
