The docs are generated on the gcc.gnu.org machine when the release
manager cuts a release. I'm not sure if we want to regenerate the
existing docs for old releases, but maybe we can install Texinfo 6.8
on that machine so that it's used for the nightly refresh from trunk
and for future releases. On the old gcc.gnu.org machine there was a
lot of custom-built software which was a pain to maintain. For the new
machine, I think the policy is to rely on distro packages unless
there's a very good reason for an exception. Texinfo 6.8 is not
currently available in the repo for centos8, so would need to be added
to the EPEL repos or somebody would have to maintain a COPR build for
