Yes, the reason is that I cannot produce figures due to osmesa. However the
figures are only needed for the pdf (or html) docs. Those files can be
rather easily accessed from the internet and thus I am not very concerned
for now. Nonetheless, the functional help would be nice to have. 

My idea was to disable only the specific pdf/html build targets but it would
be rather tedious for me to go to all details of doc/ It would be
great if someone could give me a hint. I could also try to create a new
configure switch "--disable-manual" or something similar....


P.S.: I do not think that it matters but I use texinfo 6.0.
