Description of Problem:

Most packages do not include their texinfo source, so it's impossible to print
info pages.

Of course, the work-around is to install the source rpm and get the texinfo
sources from it, but what a pain.

notting: Warren went through and *removed* all the PDF documentation we shipped,
