System: NetBSD 1.5W NetBSD 1.5W (ZORKMID-$Revision: 1.12 $) #104: Sun Jun 24 21:48:35 EDT 2001 i386

The two-column macros I implemented in the distrib/notes for
common/donations don't work well enough for production use. This PR is a
placeholder to remind me [or some diversion nroff whiz] to fix them.

	Just try turning on .Bc/.Ec (e.g. rev 1.20) in commmon/donations;
make sure to inspect all the different output formats, as sometimes lossage
is only visible in some of them.
	workaround: turn them off (done).
	Wait until a rainy nroff day and go debug them.
