`Info-make-manuals-xref' _is_ defined in
help-fns+.el.  And no extra packages are needed
for help-fns+.el.

But adding the functionality of
`Info-make-manuals-xref' is not necessarily
something that vanilla Emacs would want now.
That should probably be discussed separately.

Similarly, there are other features used by
`describe-keymap' that I'm not sure you want to
add now to vanilla Emacs.  And you definitely
don't need the code that supports older Emacs

Bottom line, if you want to add only bare-bones
`describe-keymap' to vanilla Emacs then just
use the attached definition.
