Does the tp/LocaleData directory exist, and if so, what is in it?

Have you run "make" to generate the content of this directory? (Not
"make install".)

That file (tp/Texinfo/Convert/XSParagraph/Makefile.PL) shouldn't be
used at all. Why's it being used?

Again that file shouldn't be used. I expect it is breaking because
files were moved around since the last time it worked.

tp/Texinfo/Convert/XSParagraph/Makefile, when it exists, should have
been generated from Makefile.am and Makefile.in, not Makefile.PL. Do
you know why it is otherwise?
