    Agreed.  I thought the reason why `man' was not in the default
    target was because some `tar's might leave timestamps alone,
    so that the relative timestamps depend on the order in which
    the files were extracted from the tarball.

Does anyone know if this is true?
If it is true, and Make tries to run makeinfo on a system
that doesn't have it, that will get an error
but the info files will still be correct
(as they were in the distro).  So what we want is
to ignore errors from the recursive make for the man dir.
