| 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 :-).

Well, this is a major pain in the neck from Texinfo.  I do expect it
to be fixed some day.  Since as of today there is no reason to run
makeinfo -E on autoconf.texi, I don't want to break the documentation

Why do you run makeinfo -E?
