I'm saying that I generated PostScript file via man -Tps and then looked
into generated PostScript file.
And in PostScript file on place where should command line switch
--something was F2(\255... or F2<ad... \255 is IIRC glyph encoded in
octets and <ad> in hex. 0255 and 0xAD are both decimal 173, so both
refers to same glyph.
Now I see that in that PostScript file is also attached encoding vector
def /ENC0 [ ... ] and on position 173 is name /minus. And according to
Adobe /minus name represent Unicode code points U+2212.
So you are right it is not soft-hyphen, I forgot to see at encoding
vector in result PostScript file.
And also answer my question why ps2pdf converter from generates PDF file
where for switches are used U+2212 code points. ps2pdf did it correctly
by looking into attached encoding vector /ENC0.
So problem is for sure in grodvi which generates that PS file with
attached encoding vector. Unicode's hyphe-minus has code point U+002D
and according to Adobe's glyphlist.txt, U+002D is assigned to glyph name
/hyphen.
So man -Tps (or grodvi) can be fixed. Just it is needed to generate
correct encoding vector and use proper glyph name /hyphen for \- when
generating from manpage.

In font/devps/TR file is this line in "charset" section:
\- 564,286 0 173 minus
Should not this be number 45 instead of 173?
