This is a side effect of having /usr/gnu/bin before /usr/bin in the path. /usr/bin/groff is the correct groff(1). A workaround might be to make sure man(1) runs /usr/bin/groff explicitly.

The actual problem is not groff(1), but /usr/gnu/bin/neqn and /usr/gnu/bin/nroff.

Hardcoded the paths in man(1):
