Fair enough, there's probably similar issues with org etc.  That said,
wouldn't the top-level info/org/whatever file share the package name?

That's why I'm currently delaying native-comp until all other changes
to emacs-build-system are done.

If you're going for a "manual" approach, I'd suggest instead making a
curried ((build-documentation #:texinfo-files #:texinfo-regexp ...)
#:outputs ...) so that the files can be written directly into the (add-
