contrib/hdtbl/examples: delete the date and time macros


Printing dates and times while formatting examples is not very useful.  Besides, the timing data is about two decades old and was obviously never again looked at.

Delete it because it creates noise in build logs, hindering comparisons.  Also, running groff -U during a build was really ugly.

This continues the trend of avoiding gratuitous variations in the build.

Looking for OKs to commit this change...
