Follow-up Comment #2, bug #55941 (project groff):

This complicates matters a small amount for a small benefit.

Yes, if you want to do elaborate testing, you should install the package.  But
if you want to do a simple test with the latest source code, perhaps to check
whether some unexpected behavior in a release version also occurs with the
current development code (I often do this before opening a bug report),
test-groff is helpful.  test-nroff would be also.

Helpful enough to justify the extra installation complexity and maintenance? 
Perhaps not.  I don't feel strongly about it either way.
