Hi Neil,

I've looked into this now.  Revised patches are attached.  Sorry for
the delay.

Some of the files were missing, they also needed to be added to

This turns out to be a problem with makeinfo, which assumes that the
HTML output is always in the current directory.  It does not copy
images into the target directory when it is different (I've checked
the latest CVS for this).

The attached patch number 0003 works around it with a conditional, so
that the HTML includes the ASCII version.  I think this is the best
that is feasible with currently deployed versions of texinfo.

I will see if I can make a patch to makeinfo for Karl to copy the
images to the target directory to avoid the conditional.
