Maybe. I got it in GNU/Linux distribution, I did not build it
myself. Maybe I should later. But I wish to try if it works as

I cannot find them.

I have the script, it requires file argument, or font argument, how
should I know which one?

I have TeX Gyre fonts in the system.

They are listed as:

 tex-gyre-fonts /usr/share/fonts/tex-gyre/texgyreadventor-bold.otf
 tex-gyre-fonts /usr/share/fonts/tex-gyre/texgyreadventor-bolditalic.otf
 tex-gyre-fonts /usr/share/fonts/tex-gyre/texgyreadventor-italic.otf
 tex-gyre-fonts /usr/share/fonts/tex-gyre/texgyreadventor-regular.otf

So is that to somehow include it for groff? How?
