What would really be nice is if mkdoc arranged things so that when
makeinfo prints an error message, you could go directly to the offending
line in the relevant .txh file (e.g., with Emacs's "C-x `" command),
instead of looking up the file and line in the generated libc2.tex.
Right now, mkdoc just adds a line stating the file name from which it
took the stuff, which at least avoids prolonged grep'ing, but it's still
annoying (and a bit error-prone: someone who is not familiar enough with
the build process could try fixing libc2.tex instead of the sources).
