Patch: require make dvi for doc changes

It is not infrequent for documentation changes to break "make dvi".  I
think we should require them to pass "make info" and "make dvi"; OK to
commit the following patch?

It might also be a good idea for the automated regression checker to run
"make dvi", to detect patches that break it.
