Apropos is your friend: M-x apropos RET backup RET produces a list
with "backup-inhibited" in it. Indeed, the documentation is
| backup-inhibited's value is nil
| Non-nil means don't make a backup, regardless of the other parameters.
| This variable is intended for use by making it local to a buffer.
| But it is local only if you make it local.

(setq make-backup-files nil)
you can still obtain a backup by prefixing C-x C-s with two or three C-u's.

what was this supposed to do?
never seen .emacsrc. whatever uses this? that XEmacs thing?
