    Yes, I think thats right. 

I believe this was deliberate.  I think the reason was that we don't
want `make' to recurse into `man' and generate a DVI file, and we
normally distribute Emacs with the Info files already updated, so
there is no need for it to update them.

However, I guess it would be harmless now to change it so that
top-level `make all' updates the Info files but does not generate the
DVI files.
