Sorry to bother you with this; makeinfo from current CVS is OK, but GUB
(Grand Unified Binaries, the home-made build system used to build
LilyPond) uses texinfo 4.8.  In fact, makeinfo 4.8 is enough for
LilyPond, and the sources include a verbatim copy of texinfo.tex (which
I regularly update from CVS).  Including texinfo.tex in our sources may
seem unnecessary or even overkill, but LilyPond has so many dependencies
(including CVS snapshots of some packages or patched packages) that we
find it a good idea to costless remove one dependency for the user.

I played with different makeinfo versions (4.8 and from CVS) and once
noticed "charset=UTF-8" was missing in HTML output with makeinfo 4.8.
As far as I have tested, it seems that adding "--enable-encoding" flag
make all makeinfo versions >=4.8 add "charset=UTF-8", so you can forget
all about this story :-)

Sorry again for the noise
