Fixing Broken Info Pages was Emacspeak 37 Fails to Build on ArchLinux



Raman normally requests patches go to the list. 

Note that I'm not sure how much you need to worry about the warnings. These are
just that, warnings and should not affect creation/compilation of the info
files. I didn't actually see any 'errors' in the list, but only ran over it
quickly, so must have missed them. The warnings I did see looked harmless and
were just alerts regarding possible inconsistencies - just like the warnings
in compiling emacs - best avoided if possible, but not critical.

Any fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a
touch of genius (and a lot of courage) to move in the opposite direction.
