This isn't entirely true. If you use the tarball and do make clean it
will remove these files. Thus creating the issue even for tarball
users. In fact, I know it does this because I use make clean to get rid
of the tarball generated files, which (until 1.0.2) had a slightly
different naming scheme than newer makeinfo's created.

Justin and I had discussed these info files in the past. We both felt
they shouldn't be included in the tarball. Given that the only info
files that we even have are the design documentation, which isn't that
useful to most users, I don't see the point in bothering to prebuild
these files. Anyone that is likely to be interested in these files can
read the .texi files directly or install makeinfo.

I'm also not entirely sure these files are up to date. I haven't taken
the time to read over them in detail to see what their status is.
