With all due respect, 2.5.5 does have limited macros.  The standard ones
may not be defined, but the macro cpacity has existed since 2.4.100,
according to the docs.  Caldera OpenLinux eServer 2.3 ships RPM 2.5.5
with the Caldera macro set -- which is much different from the RedHat
set.  I had to port the RPM of PostgreSQL over from RedHat to COLeS
2.3.... Not pretty. Particularly since much effort had been expended to
use the _mandir etc macros.
