It does not call them under the hood, it does indeed uses texinfo to
compile his own info, but that's build-time-only.
I wonder why they were in the old setup.hint, but OTOH, do all those
other packages really need texinfo at *runtime*?
autoconf2.5, automake1.10, automake1.4, automake1.5, automake1.6,
automake1.7, automake1.8, automake1.9, cygwin-doc, gettext-devel,
libtool1.5, octave, _update-info-dir
It does indeed need libiconv and libintl, but it currently links them
I'll investigate that a bit further and either convince it to use the
shared ones or correct the setup.hint.
(0.6.8 did indeed use the shared ones)
