Thanks, but I am looking for \TeX{}/\LaTeX{} source files that are
used to build the *.pdf versions of HANDBOOK, & FAQ.  If one does a
properties on a PDF, we can see maker dvips + ghostscript 8.71.  This
is what I am looking for, the files to produce that document[sources
in tex/latex form] and see if I can produce it with what is readily
available in kertex now.

If I look in /usr/local/share/doc, these are not there either
