Colon in @pxref, automake.texi

automake-1.11.1 contains in doc/automake.texi, line 879, @node VPATH Builds:

... these builds @pxref{General Search, , @code{VPATH}: Search Path for All Prerequisites, make, The GNU Make Manual}).

This leads to automake.info-1 containing

.. these builds (*note `VPATH': Search Path for All Prerequisites: (make)General Search.).

If one tries to follow this link, an error message appears
from emacs:
No such node or anchor: Search Path for All Prerequisites: (make)General Search
from info:
Cannot find node `Search Path for All Prerequisites: (make)General Search'.

Okay, apparently there shall be no colon after VPATH in the generated automake.info-1 file. Now where is the problem: - the documentation of texinfo does not state to avoid colon in the third parameter of @pxref (or automake authors and me have not seen that it is written there), or
- texinfo forgets to escape the colon?
