This is wrong, the newline at the end of the macro (after the @c)
should be part of the macro expansion.  AFAIR, this is how the C
makeinfo worked, because the newline was collected as part of the
macro body when the @address@hidden macro block was processed.

IOW, this is an incompatible change in behavior.  Can the new makeinfo
be compatible, please?
