    rxvt (ouR XVT) - a VT102 emulator for the X window system
    @end quotation

I see.  So there's no actual logical markup.  Texinfo is not designed to
force a particular physical layout.  An environment like @quotation with
indentation only on the left might make sense anyway, but that wouldn't
help you until the next release, unless you only care about the TeX

    really no other way to get a layout like this:

Now that I see your actual example, what comes to mind is to use @table,
which outputs in exactly this format.  You can reduce the "internal"
texinfo.tex parameter to minimize the indentation.

\input texinfo

\global\tableindent = .5cm  % adjust to taste.
@end tex

@table @b
@item NAME
rxvt (ouR XVT) - a VT102 emulator for the X window system

rxvt [options] [-e command [args]]

rxvt is a colour vt102 terminal emulator intended as an xterm replacement
for users who do not require features such as Tektronix 4014 emulation and
toolkit-style configurability. As a result, rxvt uses much less swap space --
a significant advantage on a machine serving many X sessions.
@end table


Hope this helps,
