I just did try that, and these two manuals are the only ones that fail
to build with makeinfo 4.2.  cc-mode uses @headitem and @tie, and rcirc
uses @indicateurl.

So I think it should be fairly easy to fix the manuals and avoid
forcing more people to gratuitously upgrade their Texinfo
installations.  Personally, I hate it when a new package I install (in
this case Emacs) requires me to upgrade a whole slew of other packages
for no good reason; I certainly wouldn't want us to do that to others.
