The documentation for make_transform is incorrect. The
documentation lists:

make_transform([x,y,z], [f1(x,y,z),f2(x,y,z),f3(x,y,z)])

When the function make_transform actually accepts input
of the form:

make_transform([x,y,z], f1(x,y,z), f2(x,y,z), f3(x,y,z) )

    In Maxima 5.9.1, DESCRIBE (PLOT_OPTIONS) shows the text as
    "make_transform([x,y,z], f1(x,y,z), f2(x,y,z), f3(x,y,z) )",
    which is apparently correct.

    ("make_transform([x,y,z], f1(x,y,z), f2(x,y,z), f3(x,y,z) )"
    succeeds and yields a closure. "make_transform([x,y,z],
    [f1(x,y,z),f2(x,y,z),f3(x,y,z)])" fails with a complaint
    about the number of arguments.)
