The contributors.in file is not autogenerated, but I think it might be
better to change the formatting for the smallbook version instead of
altering the names.  Unfortunately, I see no quick way to change the
formatting based on the size (@ifsmallbook or similar).
Currently it seems that the smallbook targets are generated by calling
  texi2dvi -t @smallbook
Couldn't we replace this with
  texi2dvi -t @set make_smallbook
And then add
  @ifset make_smallbook
  @end ifset
to octave.texi ? We would then have a test that would be similar to @ifsmallbook.
