Bug#183860: RMS's comment on this bug is mostly irrelevant. :-/

Attempt to clarify again:

The issue is entirely about generated files which contain elements of a GFDL'ed texinfo file *and* elements of the GPL'ed texinfo.tex; such files are presumably derivative works of both, but that means they can't be distributed.

GCC actually hit this already; I believe we ended up with a plan to switch to a differently-licensed replacement for texinfo.tex, though I think it hasn't been implemented yet. (Neither have many other license problems at GCC. :-P)
