Yes. Messages such as those ones:
l.251: Undefined cross reference `Signaler des bogues-snt'.
l.251: Undefined cross reference `Signaler des bogues-snt'.
l.251: Undefined cross reference `Signaler des bogues-pg'. Chapitre 2 [2]

Here's the line 251:
@xref{Signaler des bogues}, si vous d├ęsirez signaler un bogue.

And there's a "Signaler des bogues" in the texinfo file:
@node Signaler des bogues

BTW, I already tried to replace the accents with texinfo commands. As I
said, I really would avoid doing this, because the texinfo file would be
difficult to read since there're a lot of accents in French text.
Anyway, I tried thoses commands, and indeed the accents are there in the
pdf file. However, the pdf is "messed". I mean, there were some junk
text on some pages, which looked like nodes names.

Nicolas.
