man -l hello.1 works and displays the manpage! (with OpenBSD 6.1).
I wanted to learn roff, groff/troff, I based my code on the 2.7 example and
will update to 2.10.
I seem to have a local Ubuntu 16.04 problem with manpages unrelated to GNU
hello. I also thought that man hello would work after installing.
