The GNU info files have been contributed, but a patch has just been
submitted that I'll try to get to in time.  In the past, we've run
into problems with elisp library incompatibilies between emacs and
xemacs.  We'll see how the proposed patch holds up.

Even if we aren't able to get it working, someone will probably
contribute a version.  This is how all recent GNU info versions have
been prepared (like for the past four years or so).
