info should stay. There are lots of info files that have more content than man pages, and it is unique among the fancier documentation formats in that it can be nicely read inside an xterm. It also seem totally unreasoanble to disable info, rather than following the migration of upstream info docs to the new bikeshed format, when doing imports of new versions that have migrated. For disabling MKFOO by default, I think the test should be that most people doing builds are turning it off because it is more trouble than it's worth. This is the first time I've heard of anyone wanting to turn off MKINFO (by itself, without basically turning off everything for a tiny footprint system). /usr/share/info (netbsd-6) is 12M. That's a tiny fraction of base. What's the gain in disabling it? In general, it's starting to feel like there are more random proposals to delete things that don't address the overall cost/benefit.
