1) using macro in difinition macro.

autoconf.texi has macro @ovar{} and @dvar{}, which are used in
@defmac{} like below:

  @defmac AC_INIT (@var{package}, @var{version}, @ovar{bug-report},...

You know that `makeinfo -E' does not work in "Definition macro".  And
Info which came with texinfo-4.2 shows below in "Node: Def Cmd
Template" at last two lines:

    Note that, due to implementation difficulties, macros are not expanded
  in address@hidden' and all the other definition commands.

I think that such limitation can be ignored.  But some users maybe
complain :-).

2) use @@ for @. 

And I get patch from Koji Arai <address@hidden>.

3) AT_CONFIG was replaced, I think

   - Use the `AT_CONFIG' macro from within file `'.  This
     macro accepts one argument, which is the directory, relative to the
     test directory, where the executables are prepared.

But in ChangeLog:

  2001-08-27  Akim Demaille  <address@hidden>
       * m4/atconfig.m4 (AT_CONFIG): Remove, replaced by...

Please fix documentation.
