As Dave noted, this issue is subsumed by bug #57630, which is more general.

Bug #57630 proposes a similar change, but to all three GROFF_*_PATH variables that groff recognizes.  I don't think it makes sense to change GROFF_TMAC_PATH's behavior in isolation; either all or none of the three variables should be changed.  So I'd recommend this bug be made a dup of that one.

Subject: [PATCH] test-groff.in: Add the "GROFF_TMAC_PATH" variable to the
 internal one

  The environmental variable "GROFF_TMAC_PATH" is defined in the script.
The search path for tmac files can thus not be influenced with an
externally defined variable.
