P.S. don't sweat it.  It was a good guess.

Hi Stepan,

This works.  However, having "autogen.texi" consist of just
header overhead plus a address@hidden generated.texi'' turned out
not to work either.  Another good guess, but in the end the
texinfo make macros do not detect the @include directive.
Leastwise, not so it shows up in the dependencies.  I could fiddle
with manual dependencies to see how I could get them to a state
where they work once for the first build and never again.
But it is too hard.  I want it simple.  Creating a bogus file
then running automake and then deleting the bogus file; that's
simple, even if dodgy and esthetically displeasing.

Thank you very much for your ideas and help!

Regards, Bruce
