} Well, if you don't want it in the normal Functions area, and it needs to
} appear in the build tree for later installation, we're running out of
} other possibilities.

At the risk of re-opening this can of worms:

Another possibility is to handle it the way Doc/Makefile.in "install.info"
does -- I don't see how that situation is different from this one.

NOT patching these at install time means that you can't "make install"
with a different DESTDIR= than was in place at "make all" time.  *That*
seems wrong to me.

However, I was thinking Config/run-help.in and Config/_run-help.in or the
like when I grumbled about the parallel hierarchy.
