Which file should I replace? I got those files on my system:

I assume that's the latest one.
I downloaded and copied it over
/usr/share/texmf/tex/texinfo/texinfo.tex. I re-generated the pdf again,
and the problem is always there.

We really need those links in the final pdf...

OK. So, that should be solved if the images can be put in the final pdf.

In fact I tried the pdf:
- On my monoboot Linux computer @home (Debian SID), I see the bold pages
  with Acrobat 5.0.8 and Acrobat 7.0.8. I don't see them with gv.
  However, the display quality of gv is very very bad compared to
  Acrobat. Perhaps that low quality of display on screen doesn't allows
  me to see the difference between bold/non-bold pages
- On a Windows XP computer @home, with Acrobat. I do see the bold lines.
