When  trying to do "make info" and "make dvi" according to wwwdocs for
doc patches, I got errors due to the build environment after a
configure (outside the gcc tree).  I found I had to also complete a
build of the c language to get those targets to work--thus the
recommended change in the patch at the end of this message.

I used this minimal set of commands to get a good build of the
required doc test targets:

$ ../<gcc trunk src>/configure --enable-languages=c --disable-bootstrap
$ make
$ make info
$ make dvi
