This has been hacked into the src/doc/Makefile.in today. My fix involves
trying to invoke texi2html and, in case of failure, using makeinfo and
deleting the temporary directories.

Since the audience of ECLS will typically have a gnu make available
(i.e. Cygwin, linux users most BSDish installations), I have commited
the patches that make use of pattern rules. GNU make therefore becomes a
prerequisite for building ECLS.
