There are a lot of fixes possible. I'm just trying to fix the things that 
annoy me.

I do not have assignment on file for GCC. I'm not very fond of the process 
either, after having gone through it once (for libgcrypt), and having a 
second run through the process (for GNU PDF) go bad. It isn't an ethical 
issue - its just the FSF makes it so hard.

I don't see that I've actually created anything that would be copyrightable. 
The @var{} part is copy-n-paste from the texinfo manual. The rest of it 
already existed - I've only moved it around a bit, or took it from a GCC 
header file.
