I've been looking at the manual, and I don't think this is really viable. The reason is that many of the F77 and FC macros are almost identical, so one really wants to document them together. This makes it hard to be able to cleanly comment the newer stuff out.

(It's still a bit of a pain to write both macro names everywhere, e.g. @code{AC_F77_DUMMY_MAIN}/@code{AC_FC_DUMMY_MAIN}. The alternative would be to use something like @code{AC_F*_DUMMY_MAIN} in the documentation, but that might be unclear.)

Of course, I can still work on the documentation and keep the patches current via cvs updating, like I did with the code patches, until it gets merged in.
