(I adjusted the Subject line so it's useful to Gnus developers and users

That's what I wanted (and why I said overrides.texi was a hack :) except
the PDF and HTML targets are desired; I comitted a change to Gnus
accordingly to just do PDF for now.  Let me know what you think.

Now, overrides.texi is for Gnus manuals overrides: settings we may want
to propagate to all our manuals.  So I think it makes sense to have it,
just not the way I did it with shell redirection.  I renamed it to
gnus-overrides.texi and it can be used for things we want to use in all
the Gnus manuals in the future.  I hope that's OK with everyone; if not
it's easy enough to pull that include out.
