I found this discussion while looking for a place to report a bug ...

Interestingly, the according dvi, pdf and html targets are built in 

-- --
TEXINFO_TEX   = ../gcc/doc/include/texinfo.tex
MAKEINFOFLAGS = -I $(srcdir)/../gcc/doc -I $(srcdir)/../gcc/doc/include
info_TEXINFOS = libgomp.texi

-- --
$(srcdir)/ libgomp.texi 
libgomp.dvi: libgomp.texi 
libgomp.pdf: libgomp.texi 
libgomp.html: libgomp.texi 

Which results in libgomp.{dvi,pdf,html} in $(builddir) and in 
$(srcdir). At the very least, this behaviour is inconsistent.

Any other suggestions to work around this, than (re-)writing the Makefile 
rules myself?
