Yes.  Sorry.

No.  zic.8 is the Troff source of the man page, whereas I was talking
about generating the formatted man page.  That means you need to run
it through "groff -man" and place the result in man/cat8.  Otherwise,
the end-user of will need Groff to be installed at their
machines to read the man pages.
