I didn't want to use man.conf for this (as I mentioned).
Maybe a command-line switch could be added to override the _subdir. If I
don't find an answer I will check latest groff source and maybe make a
patch and submit to groff developers.
(The reason I noticed this is that I am experimenting with custom
GROFF_TMAC_PATH and custom mdoc.local, but was not used because
preformatted cat pages were being used instead. Since I didn't want to use
man.conf, I just temporarily moved my cat man page out of the way.)
