If you do not suppress pointer-validation, `makeinfo' will check the
validity of the final Info file. Mostly, this means ensuring that
nodes you have referenced really exist. Here is a complete list of what
1. If a `Next', `Previous', or `Up' node reference is a reference to a
node in the current file and is not an external reference such as
to `(dir)', then the referenced node must exist.
2. In every node, if the `Previous' node is different from the `Up'
node, then the `Previous' node must also be pointed to by a `Next'
3. Every node except the `Top' node must have an `Up' pointer.
4. The node referenced by an `Up' pointer must contain a reference to
the current node in some manner other than through a `Next'
reference. This includes menu entries and cross references.
5. If the `Next' reference of a node is not the same as the `Next'
reference of the `Up' reference, then the node referenced by the
`Next' pointer must have a `Previous' pointer that points back to
the current node. This rule allows the last node in a section to
point to the first node of the next chapter.
