Yeah, I see some of them too.  I've just commited a change that
gets rid of superfluous */dir entries and fixes the interaction
with the --output option.  I cannot reproduce the lack of manpages
in the -aw output, though.

In fact, wherever man finds that the corresponding manpage is installed.
Can you check if `man -aw automake' does return a manpage?  Also,
please run 'info -aw -x3 automake' (I've just implemented the 3rd level
too) and 'info -aw -x3 emacs' (without an empty emacs.info you created
previously) and send me the output produced.

Sure, that would be the best way.  I'll implement it.
