Thanks for looking at these problems.

Please use @file when referring to files.

Instead of the last sentence with the @url command, I think we should

  @xref{Readline Init File
==================, , Readline initialization,
        readline, GNU Readline Manual}, for details.

If you are using ssh in a reasonable environment to connect to a
remote system, then DISPLAY should already be set for you.  So we
should probably not encourage people to hardcode DISPLAY settings in
their init files unless there is no other way to make things work.
Also, we should probably just say that environment variables need to
be defined.  Why should we assume bash is the shell?
