Hmm, I have to admit I'm not too fond of this part of the patch:

  +   % CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/ksh
  +   % export CONFIG_SHELL
  +   % @var{srcdir}/configure [@var{options}] [@var{target}]
  +   % gmake bootstrap
  +   % gmake install
  +@end smallexample

Lines 3-5 here are exactly what we recommend in general, so either this
occurence is redundant (-> long term maintainance issue) or the general
description is not sufficient (and should be improved instead).

Wouldn't it be sufficient to just quote the first two lines and then
add "...and proceed as usual" or "...and proceed as described in @ref"?
