The aliases are required by your generate/Makefile, I cannot change them without patching. I also suppose they are invented by Adobe for MS-DOS so I would rather leave them as they are. For the time being, the only documentation is in the spec file; I do not intend to explain it to the user it because my intention is to override your font/devps system-wide (by setting GROFF_FONT_PATH). Maybe some README.SUSE would be appropriate if the change is accepted. I would like you to transform the build script of groff to also create and install font/gs/devps using the steps that I explicitly scripted or similar ones. I can help you with that but only if you consider it worth while. Note that my scripts are in bash which is good for SUSE but need not work elsewhere.

A device to use Ghostscript fonts with troff output, useful for
locale other than ISO Latin1; installs as
/usr/share/groff/current/font/gs/devps.  It replaces all standard
fonts, so you cannot use the default fonts at the same time.
Shouldn't this be documented somewhere?

Please review (of course, the build should migrate to a makefile if
accepted) and consider for inclusion.
It's not clear to me how this should be included.  Please elaborate.
