Re: Using texinfo CVS in real world?

    Is there a nice idiom to make that happen?

If the .info file is in the distribution, and its date is newer than the
texinfo source, it shouldn't get rebuilt, without any work needed by
anyone.  Why is it getting rebuilt?

Maybe it's a bug in all the complexity of the new info building rules in
automake 1.8, which I have not attempted to understand.

    That is, to consider 'makeinfo' a maintainer-only tool, similar to
    aclocal or autoconf, so that 'makeinfo' isn't invoked on users'

I know what you're saying, but I don't know of any option to make
info-building rules apply only if maintainer-mode (or some such).
