This looks good, thanks.  However, there is no reason to use an
outdated version for INSTALL.gen: The master of this file is in the
`gnulib' git repository; I've just updated it.

Please be careful with the file permissions!  You've committed
`' with 755 (i.e., with the executable bit set),
but it should be rather 644.  Ah, I now see that you are calling this
script directly during the build.

Uh, oh.  This is probably a bad idea: Currently, we don't need a
working perl on the build platform; we are only checking for perl on
the target platform...  Actually, I would like to stay with that, so I
fear that you have to replace `' with something
using the standard build tools (sh, sed, awk).  Another issue is that
you've called the created file `': Please use a
different extension since `.info' is already used for info files
created with makeinfo.
