Since it went straight to staging, and didn't go through fetch, extract, patch, configure, build, that means you had a previous build attempt lying around. Please clean it and try building again from scratch.

sudo port clean groff

If that doesn't work, what OS is this, on what Mac? What version of Xcode and MacPorts?
