Which version of the manual are you looking?  In my 2.0 version, page 300 is about
Macintosh physical and logical pathnames.  I also looked in the 1.3.2 version, but it
doesn't correspond to your description either.

These variables indeed do not exist in MCL 2.0; I haven't used older versions, so can't
say if they used to exist.

This variable definitely does exist.  It is in the CCL package.  If apropos didn't find
it, there is something seriously wrong with your lisp image.
