Note that it's not LaTeX, it's a different TeX format known as Texinfo.
The invocation, if you have Texinfo installed, is "texinfo
/path/to/wget.texi". Not sure, but you may need to invoke it multiple
times to get indexing and such right.

Texinfo is a format that's designed for both print and interactive
viewing, and is represented as a web of nodes, each node giving links to
which other nodes are "parent" or "previous" or "next". Editing these
links by hand is painful, and if you plan on making changes to the
source, I'd recommend using Emacs' texinfo mode, which can automatically
re-generate those links appropriately. You could even do your primary
editing in another editor, and just open it up in Emacs for the final
node-link regenerating step.
