Greetings,

This is on the rather obvious side. The --with{out}-tls was removed in
83cd14204 in 2011, but the manual and INSTALL haven't been updated to
match.

        * INSTALL: Remove mention of --without-tls
        * manual/install.texi: Likewise

Change looks okay.  The ChangeLog should probably say “INSTALL: 
Regenerate.” because INSTALL is generated from the manual, I think.

Thanks,
Florian

Correct.

INSTALL is generated by makeinfo; run make INSTALL to regenerate it. Currently we use texinfo version 6.0.
