(Yes, I use DESTDIR=/ and up until this past issue I'd never experienced
problems in doing so)
Well, this may or not have been part of the cause.  But never the less, the
time this groff (crt*) problem occured, was the build attempt, immediately 
following a build that failed on (I forget which portion of code but) a 
ttydefaults.h error.

Of course, again, wether it is related, or not, remains to been seen.
