   I suggest to report that as a bug to the VM maintainer(s).  I think VM
   should use `makeinfo', not texinfmt.el, to produce Info files.  

As the person who has mostly supported texinfmt.el these past few
years, I agree.  Indeed, for making Info files, I now use

    makeinfo --no-split --paragraph-indent=0 --verbose foo.texi

which works fine.  (It did not initially.)

   texinfmt should IMHO be considered deprecated and not used by GNU

I agree.  Its time is past.
