If the Emacs Lisp incompatibilities come from the Emacs/XEmacs Texinfo
formatting modules, I would guess you might be better off using the
`makeinfo' tool instead, which is much more speedy, anyway. `makeinfo' (as
well as the stand-alone `info' reader) are part of the Texinfo distribution
release. I did not closely follow recent evolution in that area, however,
so please take my comment with a grain of salt.
