Great job, Aleksey.

I updated the package last week. The 'g' special handling was only done on 
SunOS, to align with what groff's configure was forcing there. AFAIK groff has 
always installed with prefix-less troff et al. on NetBSD (I can't even find 
nroff/troff on my 5.1 VM - does that it with base on more recent versions?).

I'd rather leave it like this then, with the single SunOS inconsistency patched
