Can you tell me more about the purpose/use of the .aux file? Or
point me into the documentation? I don't know how should I 'hack it'.

Er... I'm actually using those constructs, you can check that in the
attached file I sent, unless I forgot the attachment or there are
*other* constructs I'm not aware of. With 8-bit characters texi2dvi
works, but swallows accented characters. With 7-bit constructs,
texi2dvi fails to generate correctly the .ps file, as shown in my
previous mail.

Character 186 from iso-8859-1. If you have python you can do "print
'\xba'" in the interpreter. It's used in spanish for 1st, 2nd, etc, where
'st', 'nd', etc are substituted by that character.

I would welcome pointers to the patches you have recieved, in order
to check them myself. Also, any anonymous cvs with the texinfo source?
