I don't think so: The install.texi file is also included by the autoconf
documentation (autoconf.info). However, @firstparagraphindent is a global
setting pertaining to an entire manual.

Then autoconf can either make a copy from gnulib's repository, or mirror
gnulib's Makefile rule.

Good point. I've changed the rule to use --no-validate instead of --no-warn.
--no-headers and --no-split appear to have no effect in this case.
