Yes, that seems like a bug. All invocations of $(MAKEINFO) should
actually read $(MAKEINFO) $(MAKEINFOFLAGS), and MAKEINFOFLAGS should
be properly passed down trough the Makefiles.
I just realize that Fortran explicitly uses --no-split, though this
may be best in the case of f/BUGS and f/NEWS which are mere text-files.
Toon, should we use MAKEINFOFLAGS for g77.texi instead of hard-coding
the parameters for makeinfo?

I believe HTML should also use this flag. Originally I wanted to make
--no-split a part of MAKEINFOFLAGS, but this would affect the generation
of .info files as well as HTML files, so Karl suggested to set
--split-size very high, which only affects .info output, and not HTML.
Unless you'd also prefer HTML files not to be split, in which case we
probably should globally use --no-split as part of MAKEINFOFLAGS.
