Seems reasonable; let's try it...

   Judging from .../INSTALL, I should use gmake.

   Looks like .../doc/src is the key directory.

   Whoops!  No READMEs in sight...

   Hmmm.  Nothing in .../doc/src/Makefile about "two-sided mode".

   Aha.  I see .../doc/src/sgml/Makefile, but nothing there, either.

     % grep 'two-sided' *
     % (ulp)

Would some assistance be too much to ask for?  I'm not expert in (g)make,
PostgreSQL, SGML, or (*)TeX*, but I don't really think I should have to
be, in order to generate the needed PostScript files.  If someone would
give me a bit of hand-holding, I _promise_ to keep good notes!  Hey; I'll
even give you an acknowledgement if you like!
