Lisp_functions should distinguish between defvar and other (def*
constructs, and tag the former only if --declarations.

Would you consider a different patch that looks at the declarations
global variable and distinguishes among "(defvar" and other "(def"
contructs?  Such a change would reuire to be reflected in the help
strings, the man page and the info docs.

I can do that myself, but I cannot guarantee a deadline earlier than
some weeks from now.
