It's actually sorta both. See
which we introduced to migrate from texi2html to texi2any. It happens
that upstream didn't actually checked for texi2html. But it didn't
enable the documentation generation either anyway. So in the end
it's really only a matter for Debian. I will bump the version of the
dependency to make sure to have texinfo >= 5.2. If backports are
desired, it is a matter of not applying the abovementioned patch and
putting back the texi2html dependency.
