For what it's worth, in GNU make I don't archive this file at all;
instead I retrieve it dynamically from the gnulib repository. I do this
with a bunch of files, such as po files and other things. This forces
people who want to build from Git repos to run a "make update" rule
first but it's nice because I don't need to keep up with whatever's the
latest upstream. Unless you have a need for some specialized version of
texinfo.tex this might be something to consider.
