The definitions work fine with groff -Tascii -man. That's what I use to
build the man page copies shipped with the distribution.

The installed nroff-manpage is formatted on Solaris with
sh -c cd /opt/csw/man; nroff -u0 -Tlp -man /opt/csw/man/man3/ history.3 | col -x which is not capable of processing the macro properly. If there is no reason against it I would appreciate a lowest denominator set of nroff- operation
for maximum portability (including Solaris :-).

Best regards
