I'll set it to postponed in the moment. I think, a real solution would be to replave the texinfo documentation by something other.

Problem here is, that there is a builtin receipe in autotools to build pdf from texi source, which brings the problem, but this isn't to solve with a simple fix and could bring similar problems in every new autotools version.

cu, Thomas

A workaround is to remove the '-o $@' in the generated doc/Makefile rule for .texi.pdf:
