Is it a frequent situation that someone who does the configure and
"make" steps doesn't have makeinfo?  I thought this to be rare.  If
I'm wrong, then I guess those users who do want to generate the Info
files with a non-default style of punctuation will have to install
Texinfo or live with this minor problem.  And if we use (a) as well,
then the distributed version will already be completely readable, if
not the most beautiful one.

No, of course not.
