If you are using mom the pdfmom command will do the forward references for you. 
If you are not using mom the actual command is:-

groff -Tpdf -dPDF.EXPORT=1 -z $cmdstring 2>&1 | grep '^.ds' | groff -Tpdf - 
$preconv $cmdstring

(NB Note the single hyphen '-' before $preconv).

$cmdstring should be replaced with any groff params and your filename, and
$preconv is any particular -k or -K switches you need.

Keith, is there any chance I could add something along these lines to pdfroff 
if the -T pdf switch is passed to pdfroff?
