With the distributed tarballs, there is *no* dependency on Netpbm!

`gnu.eps' *is* distributed in the groff-1.22.2 tarball, in the `dir'
subdirectory.  How do you get the impression that it is missing?
Looking into the archive, I see that `gnu.eps's timestamp is 10
seconds after the one of `gnu.xpm'; this means that the dependencies
are correctly fullfilled, and a call to `make' doesn't try to
regenerate the EPS file.

If you do a normal `./configure && make && make install' incantation,
and you experience problems with `gnu.eps', please show a log file of
the build process.
