Update to today's font world. What groff currently supports natively (PostScript Type 1) is out of date since 15 years. Heirloom troff has support for this.

(This upgrade request comes from Werner Lemberg's list of the highest priority major upgrades groff needs, as posted to the groff email list on 15 Nov 2013. The paragraph above is the upgrade description in his own words.)
