With texinfo 5.2 the built-in function __makeinfo__ returns an empty text when
requesting html output. This is important for the octave-forge package
generate_html which will generate documentation without function help text.


[r1, r2] = __makeinfo__ (get_help_text ('max'), 'html')

will return


This is because by default makeinfo now writes the output to the input file.
Adding "--output=-" to the makeinfo arguments fixes this, because makeinfo
will then write to stdout.
