Hi Nicolas,

    to generate pdf files out of the png images to generate the pdf file,
    since texi2pdf expect images to be in the pdf format.

I should probably change texinfo.tex there; pdftex can accept images in
most of the common formats (except eps), so there's no reason Texinfo
couldn't also.

    Now, it seems makeinfo expect .txt images to be found! 

I think it might be falling back to .txt because the file doesn't
actually exist.  For docbook output, there is code in makeinfo 4.8 which
tries a bunch of other image formats.  Are you using 4.8?  (Sorry, you
probably mentioned it before, but I don't remember ...)

    background rendering directory.  The @image{images/magnify,5mm,5mm,.png}

The fourth argument is intended to be the "alternate text" for html <img
alt=...>, but you gave ".png".  You probably want something like:

BTW, scaling in both directions at once is probably not what you want to
do either, since it generally leads to distortion.  I suggest just
giving one "5mm".
