By the way, one thing I'd noted is that the following is almost
certainly incorrect:

+    /* GROFF uses Fd to set fill color for solid drawing objects to the default, command ignored */
+    if (*s++ == 'F' && *s == 'd') return;

I believe it should be
     if (*s == 'F' && *(s+1) == 'd') return;
or something like that, as *s is used later in the function as well.
