I see. I just don't understand why -- it's (nearly) the same
source. Why not just set the .PATH in the reach-over Makefiles to a
common directory? (Yeah, only one of them exists yet.)

I don't even care particularly which of the two we choose (though I'd
prefer gnu/usr.bin/texinfo because when I think 'texinfo' 'toolchain'
is not the first dir I go looking in).
