bug#18059: 24.3.92; defvar and special variables

>From eval.c:

    /* A simple (defvar foo) with lexical scoping does "nothing" except
       declare that var to be dynamically scoped *locally* (i.e. within
       the current file or let-block).  */

This behavior isn't obvious, so it should be mentioned in the docstring
of "defvar" and in

   (info "(elisp) Defining Variables")
