@docdir@ and others unimplemented in 2.59

I was trying to use @docdir@ in a Makefile.am with Autoconf 2.59 as specified in the GNU standards online, but actually it's only defined in the Autoconf CVS, as of 2005-01-05. The 2.59 documentation, on the other hand, omits docdir as an available variable.

I don't know if this is intentional... it seems to me that you'd want the standards to match the latest stable version of tools. I suppose @htmldir@, @dvidir@, @pdfdir@, @psdir@, and @localedir@ are also bad, and possibly others too.
