    mdoc(7): improve output of .At 32v
    The official designation by AT&T was "UNIX/32V", so use that in the output.
    That also makes sense because "system/architecture" is a widespread
    convention to refer to the port of an operating system to a specific
    architecture, in this case 32V (32bit DEC VAX).
    The former wording "Version 32V AT&T UNIX" was misleading because 32V
    is not a version number.
    Even though UNIX/32V was not officially designated as Version 7 by AT&T,
    prepend "Version 7" because it was in fact a straightforward port of
    Version 7 AT&T UNIX.  That makes it easier to understand for 21st
    century readers of manual pages.
    Patch from nabijaczleweli at nabijaczleweli dot xyz.
    Closes <>.
