  Figures... My RPMs do. You might want to use the spec file in CVS on

  Correct. The only ones still adding stuff to the texi file work at Redhat...

  Not that I'm aware of. Any info pages made off the texi file are gonna be
way, way out of date. I haven't maintained it for quite a few years.

  Yes. That's what I do. I build all the output formats, and include them
in the rpm. That way folks get html, ps, pdf, and rtf, without having to
install all the doctools. They then get stuck in /usr/share/dejagnu/html.

  Just as a note, I'm almost ready to do the 1.4.3 release. It may come out
in the next day or so, as soon as I can get my damn HPUX machine to stay up
and running long enough to run all the GDB/Binutils/GCC tests. (all the other
platforms tested fine)
