PDFMOM_BIN_PATH; /Users/axel/src/groff/src/devices/gropdf/pdfmom

-M/Users/axel/src/groff/tmac -M/Users/axel/src/groff/tmac -M. 
examples/ >examples/typesetting.pdf

in $PATH.
If you installed groff with gropdf earlier it is found in $PATH, but the 
version used is not the current version.

When you install groff and call make again, nothing happens since the zero 
length file already exist. You have to delete the pdf files and the stamp and
