    > 2) Similarly for texinfo.tex:

It would be better for packages using gnulib to get texinfo.tex from
gnulib.  It's (nearly always) newer.

Of course, not all automake-using packages use gnulib.  So then getting
texinfo.tex from automake is useful (I guess).

So, does automake refrain from installing texinfo.tex if the file
already exists and is newer?  If so, then it seems there can be peaceful
coexistence.  If not, not.

Furthermore, the same is true for config.sub, config.guess, depcomp,
install-sh, and tons of other files.

Sorry if I'm missing the obvious here.
