Me too.  I still do.  FYI here is my bsd make macro set
 http://www.berklix.com/~jhs/src/bsd/fixes/FreeBSD/src/jhs/share/mk/berklix2.mk
(I just added support to generate pcl both via .ps & direct from .rof,
as sometimes direct doesnt space properly.

Here is a WYSIWYG set of patches for vi + groff ghostview chimera etc
 http://www.berklix.com/~jhs/src/bsd/fixes/FreeBSD/wysiwyg.shar.csh
that let one edit groff in vi, & each :w causes a rebuild & redisplay.

Cheers,
Julian
