You're welcome. Anyway much of the ugliest bits in mk/texinfo.mk are
for dealing for old-style configure's and Makefile.in's.

Not sure is `--no-split' should be inforced by pkgsrc/mk/something.
I think this is more a per pkg issue -what drives its need ? Is the default
size (70k) above which infos are splitted is considered too low ?
And I guess per pkg patches should be better on this topic. I may be wrong.
