I downloaded an Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS VM image, installed the required
packages (including texlive 2017 and texinfo 6.5) and it _still_ works
for me. I did try the texi2dvi command and others.

Tim: So sorry, but I cannot reproduce the problem.

Paul: I also completely fail to comprehend the error message and how it
would point to an issue in libmicrohttpd.texi. But if it doesn't reflect
an issue in gpl-2.0.texi, I guess you're off the hook ;-).

Happy hacking!
