As already noted in bug #63133 comment #1
<https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?63133#comment1>, your code, to do that:

.\" Save and disable compatibility mode (for, e.g., Solaris 10/11).
.do nr *groff_pdfroff_1_man_C \n[.cp]
.cp 0

doesn't work on groff-1.22.x and earlier, (because those older groff versions
do not grok the 'cp' register).  I think that we should endeavour to support
such older versions, at least for as long as contemporary software
distributions continue to deliver 1.22.x; thus, unless you can see anything
obviously wrong with it, I plan to replace this, in my pdfroff.1.man, with the
following, (as reflected in the attached patch):

.\" Save and disable compatibility mode (e.g., for Solaris 10/11).
.nr _C \n(.C
.do rnn _C *groff_pdfroff_1_man_C
.cp 0

which does appear to work, on groff-1.22.4 ... at least insofar as it doesn't
raise any warnings, when run with '-ww'.
