# [OS X TeX] bookmarks in PDFs without hyperref?

I would like to be able to insert booksmarks in PDF files without using
the hyperref package. The reason I don't want to (can't?) use the
hyperref package is that it conflicts with something else I am doing in
the document in question (it loads 25-30 packages and we have defined a
ton of our own stuff) and I can't figure out what that conflict is.
Anyway, the hyperref package does way more than I need in this instance
and I only want to insert bookmarks for each chapter, section, and the
like. I assume that it is just inserting some sort of PDF special into
the output, so is there some way I can do that by inserting something
into my LaTeX source files at the right place?

A Google search overwhelming brings up references to hyperref, so I am
a little lost.

Thank you.

All the best,

-- Gary
