[Groff] Development Texinfo has better support for the macros that groff manual uses

I tried testing the groff manual with texi2dvi, but it broke. I expect
that you're currently expanding the Texinfo macros with makeinfo
before running TeX on it.
I managed to get the macros working without the makeinfo expansion
stage. I suggest trying the texinfo.tex file on
(For those interested, the problem was with opening and closing a TeX
group, with \bgroup and \egroup, in the expansion text for a macro.
This broke because the macro expansion was being done within a TeX
group. The groff manual uses macros that open and close groups to
create @deffn-like environments. )
The output looks good to me, but I may have missed something. If it
doesn't work, you can continue doing what you were doing, but if it
does work, it would be a test of the macro expansion features to miss
out the makeinfo stage.
