  • The trick in spkg-install of touching .info files to avoid running makeinfo does not seem to work anymore. The system I tested this on does not have makeinfo, which led to the new patch makeinfo.patch. (If makeinfo is not found, then $MAKEINFO is set to missing --run makeinfo, which just touches the existing .info file.)
  • compile.patch is superseded by an upstream fix (
