It is not broken for my use case.  I like the fact that 

    [[info:emacs#Top][Emacs Manual]]

is turned into

    <a href="emacs.html#Top">Emacs Manual</a>

because I generated emacs.html, elisp.html, org.html, etc. all in
my ~/public_html/ or sub-directories.  Hence 
<a href="emacs.html#Top">Emacs Manual</a>
works fine for my use case.  It is a lot faster to access GNU manuals
when they are all on local host.

Should the current behavior be the default?  Perhaps not.  I believe
makeinfo and/or texi2html generates html links pointing to the official
pages at gnu.org.  This could be the default behavior, but I hope not
the *only* behavior.  If current export code is to be changed, I would
like to see user selectable option so that I can choose to use the
current behavior.
