For sure I understand this. That is not *so* important, since the
makeinfo CVS binary is built anyway. And that's what I need.

Mmmm... I'll fetch the latest CVS again. If that doesn't work, I'll
delete the file you indicated.

The problem is that as I said, we'll use the docbook output for
contextual help. Both the application and the manual are evolving. The
sections names need to be synchronized with the option used to call yelp
(the help browser). That's why the user will need an up-to-date docbook
help file. We could also ship the docbook file with each revision,
that's possible. Anyway, we'll also look at this possibility.

Yes, I already sent the message. I'll use the email you indicate next
time. Do the bug reports appear on savannah then?

Thank you very much, Karl!
