So what do you suggest?  Do an sed job when creating the binary
distributions, cutting out the preview-latex parts at installation

Rerunning makeinfo is not really an option: one of our goals in
packaging was that makeinfo would only be required after source
changes.  So we should not touch the README and INSTALL in the source
