Environment variables should have the @env markup.  @var is not for 
variables, but for things that stand for something else.  E.g., 
@var{source-path} stand for the path that FSDB should search for source 
files.  By contrast, FSDBPATH is a name of a variable that stands for 
itself.  So @var is inappropriate for it.  The same is true for `errno' 
(another ``popular'' mistake)--not that you used it in this case.
