The standard groff font paths are embedded into gropdf when it is built by 
make. Lines 58-9 
should look something like:-


Groff itself look for DESC files, so if the message is:-

    cannot load 'DESC' description file for device '%1'

groff can't find it. But if the message is:-

    failed to open device description file 'DESC'

it has come from gropdf.

It will help to know which message you are seeing.
