Groff has a -C flag for compatibility for nroff - it stops it complaining
about various things. Rather than a link, you'll need a small shell script
groff -C $*
I don't know about the other formatters, but I would guess that the same
I favour having something there that will work most of the time rather than
nothing - which will work none of the time, of course.
