The second unrelated package -- CVS texinfo -- I'm testing current CVS
Autoconf on breaks as well due to this patch.  Paul, pretty please let's
just revert all these changes, so we can release 2.60 without headaches;
then we can put them back in, and I'll do some major "let's fix all scripts out there in the world" tour.

Meanwhile, please apply this patch to texinfo.


        * Fix some underquoted macro usage.
