I have looked a little and it and the result can be found here:

the link

contains a description of how it is generated and the input files
being used.  It basically contains a copy of the rest of the 

Things I have changed to get this

* Added @title in the /userfaq.texi/ to get rid of
  the *Unknown title* in  the browser window title.

* Created a new /gnustep.init/ file to feed /texi2html/.  
  Note I only tested it with version 1.64, the version
  Adam uses.  I had problems with version 1.66.

* Created a new file /links.input/ which is now also used by
  /texi2html/ to generate the sidebar.

* Changed the command invocation of /texi2html/ from

    texi2html -split_chapter -expandinfo userfaq.texi


    texi2html -init_file=./gnustep.init -split_chapter -expandinfo userfaq.texi

Remaining problems

* I removed all navigation rows.  This is probably to drastic, perhaps
  at the top and bottom of the page there should be some non-intrusive
  navigation bar.

* I just hacked the init script.  I do not know a lot about perl
  (which it is) and so this is probably not the /Right way/.

* It just seems a good idea to split the sidebar in a file of its own.
  But it introduce a dependency on the /cat/ program and it creates an
  an extra file to maintain.
