The supplied .ps documenation files:


are duplex-printer unfriendly.

They print the table of contents after the document (presumably
to simply generation and only have to run TeX once), but do not
take care to leave an extra blank page between the last page
of the arabic numerals and the first page of the roman.

This results in, for instance page 32 of the install guide being
on the reverse of page i of the same. Since both pages have text
on them, this is inconvenient :-)

Also, there is no space left between the "Permission is granted..." page
(which is immediately prior to page arabic 1) and page arabic 1, so it
is impossible to insert the TOC in that place, even if the TOC were
suitably seperated from the end of the document.

Save a tree.

Fixed. Added a call to "@pagealignmacro" to work around a texinfo
bug, thus forcing a pagebreak after the copyright pages.
