Wirklich! I had not heard of this till you mentioned it (above),
but a little search has led me to comp.sources.unix at

and, specifically,


  Title:        lbl

  Description:  lbl preprocessor for [nt*]roff

  The following shar archive contains the lbl preprocessor for
  [nt*]roff. lbl handles generation of and symbolic references to
  sequenced labels, alphabetic, numeric, or mixed.  Forward
  references are supported.

  Lbl was written by C.D.F. Miller at Heriot-Watt University
  (Scotland), and was originally posted to net.sources over a
  year ago.  It compiled and ran without a hitch on my tiny
  VENIX system and has performed flawlessly ever since; this
  is high praise indeed for a net.sources widget.  Hence, this
  shar archive contains the author's original code and
  documentation, untouched.  Share and enjoy.

Could be interesting!

Best wishes,
