Sorry, I did not note that. Comparing with your patch the part of mine
that generates the PDF is more like a quick hack.

Yes, I will do this (at least).

But I missed them a lot, since I like INFO format (very convenient
from within Emacs) and (hyperlinked) PDF format (often nicer to read
than HTML - especially when creted by TeX) for documentation a lot. So
I want those formats automatically installed if available, and do not
like to copy those files by hand. But since there may be reasons not
to automatically install INFO or PDF (not to use INFO files, no TeX
installed to create the PDF, ...) documentation I've created the
additional install targets for make.
