You must disable the footer in the lilypond input – and you should
also set the indentation of the first line to zero to get a really
tight bounding box.  Try something like the following.

  \version "2.16.2"

  \header {
    footer = ""
    tagline = ""

  \paper {
    indent = 0

  { c' e' g' e' }

[The `lilypond-book' script for TeX adds \header and \paper blocks
automatically, but Bernd's script for groff doesn't do that, AFAICS.]

BTW, I *strongly* recommend to update your lilypond installation to
version 2.18.x, since (a) its output much superior to 2.16.x, and (b)
the 2.16 series is no longer supported.  And don't forget to update
your snippets with the `convert-ly' script in case you change to 2.18.

I've never used glilypond.  However, looking into its man page I see


    The new groff(7) structure generated by glilypond is either

      1) sent to standard output and can there be saved into a file or
         piped into groff(1) or groffer(1) or

      2) stored into a file by given the option -o | --output file_name
