Hmm, come to think of it, the Texinfo manual says it's OK to use tabs
in verbatim modes, and I use that in some of my manuals (e.g.,
diffutils, since the diffutils output uses tabs).  Can you fix the
rule to not complain about tabs in that case?  This would mean we
could avoid the need to worry about the autoconf.texi change you

Also, shouldn't that look for files that end in either .texi or
.texinfo or .txi (Bison uses .texinfo, and Texinfo uses .txi)?

Also, why just look in doc?  Can't we use CVS_LIST_EXCEPT to find all
the texinfo files checked in under CVS?  Many packages put texinfo
files elsewhere (e.g., Emacs, Gnus, libc).
