When I read this, I was almost through anyway, so here goes it all.  :-)
While at it, I also took liberty to fix many overlong lines in the dvi
output (the `make' chapter is one important exception; its high
indentation makes it very hard to write decently there), and add a
couple of comments to improve texi highlighting in vim.

In order to give a quick overview of the changes, they are broken down
in several patches:
- hunks with simple added quotes only,
- quotes which also add [] to otherwise empty arguments,
- added quotes which refer to either old macros or directly to pieces of
  Autoconf code (and may thus be technically incorrect),
- highlighting helper comments,
- removal of many overfull/underfull hboxes.

You may want to check the third patch and the last patch in more detail,
as the last one actually changes content (plus adds a few [] as well),
and I am known to produce incorrect English at times.  :)

I have deliberately not touched on the subject of double quotes (for
example for C code snippets), however that would need a check as well,
but I was unsure about the rules to apply there.  They are easy to find
quickly, though.

Of couse, my patches (hopefully) should not touch any macro definition
or any examples which point out old or wrong-quoted code.

If you *really* want me to, I could write detailed ChangeLog entries.
But I'd rather not, and I figured I'd at least wait to see which parts
you actually want.
