R-alpha: help processing

On Solaris (and presumably other System V Unices), the default buffer
length for m4 is only 4096 characters. This limits the length of
ARGUMENTS() or VALUES() in help files. survfit.coxph overflows this limit. 

Adding the option -B 8192 to m4 in the etc/doc2* files fixes this.
