Hi Ralf,

It looks like the last line should contain:

It would if you had

but from 'info texi2dvi', I cannot even infer whether it is intentional
that @setfilename not decide the name of DVI or PDF output, and while I
think it implies to do so for HTML, I'm not fully sure either.
Wow. Sure enough. I set the texi setfilename field to and all is well again. It never occurred to me that Automake would look inside the texi file to determine the name of the output file, but it makes sense. I copied this sample file from the texinfo manual as a quick input file, but didn't check the contents that closely.

Thanks for the tip.
