Can't build manual: make manual.html produces unmatched ( in regex error.
I was able to successfully build the manual some time ago, so the problem is likely to be in recent changes in Support/texi2html.

How to repeat:
Try building the manual and get this error: 
$ make manual.html
Support/texi2html -number manual.texi
Unmatched ( in regex; marked by <-- HERE in m/( <-- HERE ^/ at Support/texi2html line 889.
make: *** [manual.html] Error 255
