I tend to agree with this.
I've built groff on OpenBSD 3.6 using native make (not gmake).
I use it extensively and it works without problems.
Has there been any change in CVS to the file in question since

FWIW, the only reason I do not use 1.19 branch is that it doesn't work
with gpresent.  The request .PAUSE inside a pic creates a vertical move,
and the figure ends up quite different from what it should be. :-)
Has anything been done to address this issue?
