Your Info version of the Elisp manual is not up to date.  I guess you ran:

 $ ./configure
 $ make
 $ cd lisp
 $ make recompile EMACS=../src/emacs
 $ cd ..
 $ make

as recommended in INSTALL.CVS.

I thought that `make' automatically updates the Info docs, but I am
not really sure of that.  I am sure that somebody else on this list
will know.  I personally always do `make maintainer-clean', `configure'
and `make bootstrap', which does update them.

I get a "Don't know how to make maintainer-clean" message when I run
`nmake maintainer-clean'.  I made the mistake of locating a makefile that
DID know how and it emptied my emacs\info directory.  nmake bootstrap
completes successfully but it never rebuilds the info files.

Fortunately I messed with makeinfo briefly once before and knew enough to put this together for my Emacs compile .bat file. I think it's making them all (along with some it shouldn't) but I'm sure there's a 'PROPER' way to build them and I'd appreciate a pointer to what it is.

cd ..\info
for /F "delims=*" %%F in ('findstr /m /s ^\input ..\*.texi*') do (makeinfo 
cd %~p0
