A font is a set of characters in an specific typeface.  Unlike
TeX, troff does not consider the same typeface at different
sizes to be different fonts.

You have to make the width tables, install them, and tell the
troff filter how to emit/request the fonts.  The details differ
from one package to another.  Check the documentation.
