 There are several packages which contain some reference similar to:

 "If you have TeX installed and wish to create alternate forms of
 the documentation, then issue any or all of the following commands:"

 This is actually technically incorrect in that creating the HTML
 and TEXT versions of the docs does not require TeX. makeinfo from
 the Texinfo package (from LFS) is sufficient.

 Therefore, as we run across packages that contain this abiguity,
 the verbiage should be replaced with something such as:

 "You can create alternate forms of the documentation (PDF, DVI
 and Postscript requires a <xref linkend="tetex"/> installation)
 by issuing any or all of the following commands:"
