Being fully correct here means generating internals.itexi whenever
*something* in the lilypond binary changes - Scheme functions defined
in C++ also end up in there. That's basically on touching any file.

Ideally, we could make internals.itexi depend on the result of
$(top-build-dir)/lily/$(outdir)/lilypond and only generate a temporary
copy. If that is the same as before, nothing has to be updated. I've
seen this realized with some move-if-changed for other projects, but it
looked very hacky back then...

I guess that has to stay because we want distributions building from
the tarball to ship the info files to their users...
