   Hmm...  This isn't right, the CVS reporitory should IMHO reproduce the
   contents of the distribution tarball.

Certainly not.  Developers are supposed to have the necessary tools
installed.  The distribution tarball is typically created by `make
dist' which should regenerate all generated files.

Putting the info files in CVS will only increase the number of
conflicts to resolve when doing a `cvs update'.
