ansify.c currently isn't K&R compilable, but even if it was, you
couldn't build the doc because (at least) of `#' and/or `##' ANSI-isms
elsewhere in the intdoc-related files.
But I'm confused. Isn't it meant to convert to proper ANSI (no bare
newlines in strings?) rather than K&R?
[I seem to have missed this thread amongst 1500 items after a week
off. Can we do something in instructions to encourage subjects which
those with an interest/responsibility will spot -- particularly with
machine assistance? Something Fortranesque would have helped in this
