Okay, but I need at least a successful configure run for that (to get the
Makefile), right? I wanted to avoid that.

Ah, I saw those lines in the yat2m file, pasted them to the top of gnupg.texi
and had no luck. I don't know anything about Texinfo, so I thought that might
work. :-)
So now I try it under Linux. I have installed all the dependencies (libassuan et
al) successfully (make check gives no errors).

And I got the documentation now. Thanks for helping out.
