Attached two changes:
  maint: add missing fdl.texi to distribution    
  doc: follow-up changes for manual improvements

This should work with texinfo 4.13 (also tested with 5.1 and 6.3).


I noticed one other small problem:
After a recent change which enabled some more warnings,
compiling with gcc 5 (both 5.2.0 and 5.4.0) produces the following error:

  sed/compile.c: In function 'savchar':
  sed/compile.c:259:15: error: format '%x' expects argument of type 'unsigned 
                               but argument 2   has type 'int' [-Werror=format=]
        panic("Called savchar() with unexpected pushback (%x)",

This warning is not triggered with gcc-4.9, and neither with gcc-6.2 or gcc-7.0.
And of course, it only happens when building from git, not from a tarball.

The only distribution I know of that uses gcc-5.4 is Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
Debian 7 and 8, Ubuntu 14.04, SUSE and CentOS 6 and 7 use gcc-4.X,
while Fedora 24 and 25 are already with gcc-6.
So I'm not sure if this warrants a change.
