paper manual, or viewed using info. It is possible to use
the info program from inside Emacs, or to use the stand-
alone version described here.

 . IGNORE_BEFORE_SETFILENAME variable removed.  former effect
   is now always on.

       HTML4 DTD reference

    in the future.

gtexinfo: explicitly enable perl XS

fails completely on macOS, perhaps this avoids the macOS problem.
