That it does.  Rebuilding the GCC manual, those are gone.  I still stand
by the more consistent zero-or-more @index commands followed by a @item
idea as a solution to this problem, since IMO the code that was enabled
by this relate transform wasn't great in the first place.

I wanted to give implementing that an attempt, but while trying to
configure and build the texinfo trunk, I get:

Though, this can be worked around with ./pre-inst-env make.  It seems
like the $(builddir)/tp directory isn't added to the include path (this
is an out-of-tree build, which is the configuration I normally opt for,
since it allows multiple configurations at one time, as well as easier
