Not sure; I've never used any SPICE other than LTSpice, and never tried to
use a 4046 in it.  I'll bet they have a model for it somewhere, though.  I
would think you could just play with the propagation delay values in the
HC4046 model to make it work with any other logic family.

I've built a ton of PLLs with the PLLatinum and Analog Devices chips, but
only one with a 4046.
