See the rule in doc/interpreter/Makefile.in:

  contributors.texi: contributors.in
          $(AWK) -f $(srcdir)/mkcontrib.awk $(srcdir)/contributors.in > 

Is 'contributors.in' autogenerated? If not then the attached patch makes things look better with smallbook. I basically shortened peoples names, which isn't a very good solution. Would it be better to only use two columns when using smallbook, and three columns otherwise?
