Using -Tpdf gives a PDF that refers to Times-Roman and doesn't embed my
local Nimbus substitute.  Adding `-P -y -P U' didn't change the PDF
produced, apart from expected CreationDate, trailer's ID, etc.

/usr/share/groff/1.22.3/font/devpdf/download has only the "blank"
foundry, with no mention of Times.  Arch Linux groff 1.22.3-6.

Cheers, Ralph.
