I haven't looked closely at the new code. However, I know that we
used to do some mildly funky stuff in order to ship
texinfo/texinfo.tex with a binutils release, while still supporting
building texinfo with all-texinfo, install-texinfo, etc., if the
complete texinfo sources were present in the source directory.
That was important for the Cygnus source tree and Cygnus releases--a
binutils release did not have the Texinfo sources, but a Cygnus tools
release did. I doubt this is important for the binutils tree, which
as far as I know never has the texinfo sources anyhow.
