problems building documentation

so i decided to play around with the handbook a bit, just for fun, and
ran into a few snags. here's the changes i had to make to Makefile.in
to get it to build with the tools i have on my FreeBSD box.

apparently my version of texi2dvi doesn't have a -I option (although
it seems to work fine without it), and my version of makeinfo
complains if you try to use --no-headers and --html together. this is
with texi2dvi version 0.8 (GNU Texinfo 3.12), and makeinfo version

does anyone else have these problems? and if not, can you still build
correctly with these changes? i'd hate to commit a change that works
for me but breaks for everyone else ;-)
