I'm quite certain we can avoid copying pictures from outdir to blddir;
however, if more generally we can't transform a file in srcdir to a file
in blddir that has the same name, let's sit down two minutes to see why
we do this.  It's not for making the pictures available to Texinfo

build system IIRC) would do the job.  For some pictures, we resize them,
but then for clarity we could give a different name to the source.  For
other pictures, IIRC we just symlink them so that they're caught by
mirrortree (a module used by that links files into *-root).
