It doesn't?  What Texinfo source did you try, and what did makeinfo
moan about?  Your example, slightly modified below, works for me.

If by ``ignoring'' you mean that it should leave it alone in
macro-expanded source, then try this:

  @alias angles = r

or something similarly no-op'ish, like

  @alias angles = w

Here's an example that works for me with "makeinfo --iftex":

  \input texinfo

  @setfilename yyy

  @macro angles{text}
  @end macro
  @end ifnottex

  @macro angles{text}
  \\angleleft \text\ \\angleright
  @end macro
  @end tex

  This is a @angles{test}.

  @table @asis
  @item This is a @angles{test}.
  @end table
