   In packaging 9.1.1 for Debian, I fixed a few minor issues.  First,
   I modified the autotools scripts to allow "autoreconf --force
   --install" to be run in src/ or doc/.

Why doesn't AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR work with vanilla auto(re)conf?  I
don't understand the explanation in the commit message, but I'm not an
autotools wizard.

   Second, I disabled parallel building in subdirectories of doc/,
   because various invocations of makeinfo and subsequent cleanup were
   stepping on each others' files.

This looks like a bug in texi2dvi, not a bug in our makefile or in
makeinfo.  The bug seems to be new in GNU Texinfo 4.13; it worked in
GNU Texinfo 4.8, which uses a per-pid temporary directory instead.

   And third, I fixed a makeinfo warning.

Grumble.  I like saying `Note:' instead of `Warning:' or `Caution:',
but I guess we ought to apply this.

   These are on the branch "tweaks" in the repository
   git://github.com/barak/mit-scheme.git, which is a clone of the savannah
   mit-scheme.git repo.  They are rebased upon the tip of the current master
