The GNU Coding Standards https://www.gnu.org/prep/standards/standards.html#Makefile-Basics specify

"GNU distributions usually contain some files which are not source files—for example, Info files, and the output from Autoconf, Automake, Bison or Flex. Since these files normally appear in the source directory, they should always appear in the source directory, not in the build directory. So Makefile rules to update them should put the updated files in the source directory."

So the Makefile MUST update the outdated doc files in $(srcdir).

Thanks. But when I always build in a separate build dir, I nevertheless want - at some point - to update the outdated doc files in $(srcdir). Your patch appears to make this impossible.

This changeset removes the cd'ing into $(srcdir) when building the doc
target files (.dvi, .info, etc.). That way relative paths (like TEXI2HTML)
still work, as their value solely depends on $(srcdir) and disregard
the cd'ing.
