Hi Simon, Kevin, and all,

    >> <http://bugs.debian.org/423577>. gnutls' info docs refer/include a
    >> couple of png-images, however make install does not install them.


The reason the Texinfo manual does not say anything about this is that I
am not sure what to say, :(.

Although it is ugly, the simplest solution I can think of is what Kevin
suggested originally: install the images in the same dir as the info
file, named like gnutls-internals.png to avoid conflicts.

The problem I imagine with using a subdir is that then I think the
@image command would have to include the subdir
(@image{gnutls/internals.png}), resulting in the *HTML* output also
having the gnutls/ subdir in the href, and that seems pretty
undesirable, as well as causing more installation complications.

Without some exhaustive investigation I can't do right now, I'm not sure
if -I options can be passed to makeinfo to any useful effect.

The ideal solution would be to have each info manual in a subdir of
$infodir in the first place.  I don't imagine it would be hard to teach
the Info readers to follow a dir entry like "gnutls" through an
$infodir/gnutls subdir if it's present, but that is not implemented in
Emacs 22 (wasn't even thought of), so it's of no practical use now.
