Following your hint, I tried to run texi2dvi from within the source 
gsl-1.3/doc/ directory. It seems to work, but I got the following error 
message at the end:

> Output written on gsl-ref.dvi (452 pages, 1852828 bytes).

> /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/texi2dvi: line 605:

What does it mean?

Anyway gsl-ref.dvi was created and it seems to be complete and after 
the dvips-ps2pdf dance I've got a good looking pdf file.
