Follow-up Comment #4, bug #52443 (project groff):

This is not really an important issue in practice.  Given that test-groff is
subtly different from real groff, and the git directory structure will be
different from an installation even after tweaking the git structure or the
build system, anybody committing changes will have to test in the installed
form anyway.

For quick intermediate tests, now that the macros are no longer stripped, you
can simply edit the installed versions during development and copy back to the
source tree before commit.  Or equivalently edit in the source tree and use
pure cp(1) of the one file you edited before each quick test.

If you want to fix the very minor inconvenience anyway, Werner's suggestion
seems simplest and clearest.
