textproc/groff has dependencies on netpbm, psutils, and ghostscript. I'd
like to have a groff-light that doesn't depend on these.

(On a related note, I was working on cawf and its mandoc macros to read
NetBSD's manual pages. If anyone speaks roff and is interested in a small
groff alternative, see cawf in pkgsrc-wip and email me for my custom
