No, there is not any support of macro notations. Macro notations has 
been deprecated from the ASN.1 standard since 1994. It is replaced by 
the information objects. The OTP asn1 compiler support information objects.

If those specs contain macro notation I guess you can find a more modern 
version of it using information objects.
If you have to use an old spec with macros you have to rewrite it. In 
that case you'll find some information in the free book by Olivier
