I agree with Werner, you are far better off running ghostscript,

Too heavy weight and it forces me to bundle groff with my products.
Nothing against groff, I clearly love it, but I don't want that much
stuff in my install image.

I fear there isn't such a thing.  At least I'm not aware of any
program which directly translates pic code without using groff.  A
solution could be to add a third mode to pic: Handling text as HTML
directly; then the pic diagram could be used as a background image.  I
don't know whether this approach works at all, and I don't have time
to play around.

How about dpic (, which processes a (subset of) pic directly into postscript (among other output formats).
