The sed expression in doc/texinfo/Makefile.am is truly neat.
Nevertheless does non-GNU seds dislike it deeply.  Would it be
ok to replace it with running awk?

This is what BSD sed thinks (free 4.9, open 3.4):

$ sed '1{s/\/\*/@comment  
sed: 1: "1{s/\/\*/@comment  /;b} ...": unexpected EOF (pending }'s)
