typo in a/maketag ?

In the file "a/maketag" there is this line:
"which" "Locate an executable in your $PATH" "on" \

Should it be this instead?
"which" "Locate an executable in your \$PATH" "on" \

I suggest instead:
"which" "shows the full path of (shell) commands" "on" \
That's what 'man which' says

PS Yes, $PATH is currently expanded.

PPS This line is there since Slackware-12.0. BTW thanks for the Slackware File Tree that comes pretty handy.
