Found it: the following was further up the error log:

--- /usr/src/tools/obj.i386/tools.NetBSD-1.6A-i386/share/groff/tmac/tmac.doc ---
nbinstall: /usr/src/tools/obj.i386/tools.NetBSD-1.6A-i386/share/groff/tmac: mkst
emp: No such file or directory

That's why it got the first ones, and not the rest. I was doing a
make -j4 release
and tools.NetBSD-1.6A-i386/share just contains misc. So next question is why
the comment in tools/groff/Makefile

# Since ${TMACDIR} is created by the `realinstall' target, the `afterinstall'
# sources below that depend on it must wait until `realinstall' is done.

doesn't seem to happen.. (At least it makes more sense now!)
