I downloaded as of now (2012-09-16, 15:30 UTC) current tarball of groff. After installing g++, texinfo and bison, .configure meant I am ready to go.

But the build fails with

Warning: line 78: Failed to create groff font 'U-AB' by running afmtodit
. more of those
make[2]: *** [DESC] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/john/Downloads/groff/groff-current/font/devpdf'
make[1]: *** [font/devpdf] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/john/Downloads/groff/groff-current'
make: *** [all] Error 2

I simply re-run make and now groff built fine? I can't tell, at least there is no more error (but I am uncertain if these font files were rebuilt.

A second
'make clean'

and the error is the same. Maybe there are dependency problems?

PS: I have a system-wide afmtodit in /usr/bin/afmtodit but I assume this shouldn't be taken as afmtodit is part of groff?
