from a mere two months ago.

I forgot to reply to this.  The dependency is strengthened, but it was there
before, if you ran "make doc".

$ make doc
makeinfo --enable-encoding -I/home/branden/BUILD/groff-1.22.4/doc --plaintext
-o doc/groff.txt doc/groff.texi
TEXINPUTS="./build-aux:" \
MAKEINFO='makeinfo -I /home/branden/BUILD/groff-1.22.4/doc' \
texi2dvi -e --batch --build-dir=doc/`basename doc/groff.dvi`.t2d -o
doc/groff.dvi doc/groff.texi
You don't have a working TeX binary (tex) installed anywhere in
your PATH, and texi2dvi cannot proceed without one.  If you want to use
this script, you'll need to install TeX (if you don't have it) or change
your PATH or TEX environment variable (if you do).  See the --help
output for more details.

For information about obtaining TeX, please see http://tug.org/texlive,
or do a web search for TeX and your operating system or distro.

On Debian you can install a working TeX system with
  apt-get install texlive
make: *** [Makefile:11904: doc/groff.dvi] Error 1
