Now I see, the HTML creation from texi files runs without errors
but thereby  a page tora.html is never created. I get a bunch of HTML
out in a subdirectory "tora". 
This explains why "make install" runs again the HTML creation.

It has the disadvantage that I run makeinfo when it is not necessary
(not terrible because makeinfo is very fast) but on the other hand I get
always fresh documentation.

The problem for me is that I can not specify all potential names of
generated HTML pages.
I have 37 texi input files which are all included in tora.texi and 
46 created HTML pages.

The goal is to create a new documentation bunch if one of the
37 texi input changed.

Do you have an idea ?
