See replacements for man parts:
I see it is in NetBSD, DragonFly, and OpenBSD now. And in FreeBSD ports.
(You already know about this part.)

Also Thorsten at MirBSD has maintained the historical (non-c++, non-GNU) 
nroff (with its additional text formatting macros and tools) since 2003.

etc ...

That could be considered to replace groff. And if anyone needs groff for 
some special project then they can use it from pkgsrc.
