# texinfo5 switches are used. This comes with no version checks, is
# enabled only at distributors action (ie defaults to "no").
# Mantis #3914 for more details (https://bugs.gnunet.org/view.php?id=3914)
+# While GNU makeinfo 6.5 supports --css-ref=URL,
+# makeinfo 4.8 (in NetBSD 8.0, macOS, and maybe other
+# base) does only support --css-include=FILE.
+# The only difference is a shorter html output and
+# in 6.5 the ability to use refs instead of include.
+# We prefer not to break builds in this case, so
+# we use the include version which is backwards compatible
+# and upwards compatible, while the ref variant is neither.
+# In the 5.x version they added `--split=chapters|sections` in
+# addition to `--split=nodes`.
+# Hold on to your hats: In version 6.5 this is already removed, ffs.
+# GNU Texinfo, please be more consistent than 1 version in switches.
