T. Kurt Bond has graciously volunteered to tackle this!  http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/groff/2021-07/msg00105.html

Savannah won't let me assign this ticket to him -- he probably needs to be a member of the project first -- but I am setting it to "In Progress."

This also suggests this item would be suitable for someone without deep groff knowledge to work on.

Script location: https://www.schaffter.ca/mom/mom-05.html#install-font

Use of the install-font.sh script makes installing fonts for groff much, much easier.  It should be integrated into groff.
