Re: [help-texinfo] Version 5.X versus 4.13 and the netperf manual

Hi Rick.  I'm confused on several counts, but here are some thoughts:

- my wild guess is that the problem is an old version of texinfo.tex on
the system.  You could ship the current version inside netperf and
perhaps eliminate the problem that way.

- I would take a look but
just says "This XML file does not appear to have any style..." 
Followed by
  <m:human-readable errcode="2"> Could not open the requested SVN filesystem
and I'm afraid I didn't want to go all the way to the original tarball.
If you can send your actual document that fails in a way that I can run,
independent of the rest of netperf, I might be able to find something
that could be done at the document level.

- Automake does not build .ps automatically.  Or .dvi for that matter.
Only .info.  So why does it matter if the has the rules to
build .ps?  How does that help Debian?  I don't get it.  It seems like
only a good thing, even though it cannot work on any conceivable system.
(For example, it will obviously fail on a system without TeX installed.)

All the best,
