#1226 gnuplot.texi fails to build



with the last stable version 4.6.2, the make on gnuplot.texi fails with the following error :
./gnuplot.texi:17653: raising the section level of @subsubsection which is too low

the error is in the @section "complete list of terminals" being followed by a @subsubsection (without a @subsection between).
The error has been seen on Arch linux x64 (GNU make version 3.82).

a patch is provided to change every faulty @subsubsection to @subsection but I don't know if it is what the author would have done.

    gnuplot.texi is a generated file, so the fix should really be applied to doc2texi.el, see attached patch.

      That would be the right thing to do (in fact that is what Arch official package does).
      But since I'm building a "minimal dependency" package (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/gnuplot-nox/), I don't expect users to have emacs to rebuild from the .el file.

    I have applied an expansion of Ulrich's patch to doc2texi.el
    *.trm HELP text level 1 -> 3 (subsection)
    level 2 -> 4 (subsubsection)
    The corresponding changes will show up in the version of gnuplot.texi included in the next release package.
