Generation process for cpp.1


The manpage cpp.1 is created from cpp.texi using contrib/texi2pod.pl plus
pod2man and hand adjustments, but the precise process (including details
of the adjustments needed) doesn't seem to be documented.  I'm wondering
about the possibility of using this script to replace the hopelessly out
of date gcc.1 manpage with something generated from invoke.texi; would it
be possible for the exact process to be documented, e.g. with an
appropriate Makefile target to regenerate cpp.1 and another script in
contrib to do what were the hand adjustments to the output?
