I've fixed processing as.texi in binutils.  I'm trying to look at the 
gcc manuals now.

Do you know what other manuals broke?  I saw 
so Octave is one.

I wonder if there any way of testing lots of Texinfo manuals 

It's often difficult to download a package and just build the 
documentation.  For example, I downloaded gcc-7.4.0 and tried to run 
./configure but I didn't have all the dependencies.  I tried running 
"texi2any" on gfortran.texi and there was a missing file 
"gcc-common.texi".  I had to create another file "gcc-vers.texi' myself 
and run "texi2any -I   ../../gcc/doc/include gfortran.texi".  There
are similar difficulties with other manuals.
