This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,

Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

Trying to pare down an emacs install, I went looking for things to
remove from a full install to get a more barebones install for a
specific machine.  Looking in /usr/local/libexec/emacs/*/* at tools
there:
  cvtmail     emacsserver  fns-21.1.1.el  movemail  rcs2log     vcdiff
  digest-doc  fakemail     hexl           profile   sorted-doc  yow

I discovered that of the nearly 1 dozen tools, only 2 of them (movemail,
yow) were findable in info under the emacs node with an `i' search and
only a few with the more intensive `s' search.  They are not to be found
elsewhere in info either.

Seems that tools that get installed with emacs ought to at least have an index
entry in info.  One should be able to find out what they are thru info.
