Hmm, well, maybe badly phrased or a misunderstanding on my part.  The
point was this:

Under SunOS or AIX, in order to produce a .0 catman page the package
called 'nroff -man page.1 > page.0'.  Under NetBSD (and all other OS),
it would have called 'nroff -mandoc page.1 > page.0'.

I therefore assumed that SunOS and AIX do need to regenerate the page.0
so as to render it correctly.  If that is not the case, and they will
happily use the pre-generated .0 page, the better.  (I don't have access
to a SunOS or AIX machine to test this, though.)
