Harry reported the same problem with @copying and @insertcopying
being undefined.  Didn't he?

The @copying stuff is new in Texinfo 4.2.  I didn't make a backward
compatibility option because the @copying requirement was political.
But maybe I should do the backward compat dance after all.  Also some
sort of Autoconf setup would be nice for Tramp.  Anyone out there
willing to snarf it from AUCTeX or Preview-LaTeX or Gnus or another
package and adapt it for Tramp?  That would be very cool.

Hm.  Does it work to use Emacs to format the thing?  C-x C-f
texi/tramp.texi RET, then M-x texinfo-format-buffer RET?
