   I'm not able to latex the book because a macro called \ifchiron is
   undefined.  Does anybody know what this is?

   (I've already done my duty and bought a copy of CLtL2---I want an
   online copy as well.)

My guess is that it refers to Chiron, which as I recall is a company in
Cambridge that creates printing masters from tex or dvi or ps files.
Therefore, unless you want to print on a 1000dpi device (or the like) you
can probably comment out whatever \ifchiron inserts.  I have not, however,
tried to run tex on the manual, so this is pure speculation.
