Since gropdf relies on the ghostscript fonts, whenever the ghostscript package 
is updated by the 
package maintainer then groff should be repackaged as well because the contents 
of the gropdf 
download file will be stale, it is only when groff is built from source that 
the download file is 
regenerated. The program, which is part of the groff build 
used to be part of 
the release, so you could rerun the program if the contents of download became 
stale, as in this 
case, but it was removed from the install after the build.

So long as groff is built after ghostscript, all should be well.
