First of all, you can't push me or any body else around here - Most of us are 
volunteers and probably only very few are being paid, so .. patience please ;)

Anyway, further comments:

There still are blocking issues:

1. the /usr/share/info/dir entry being produced by the *.texi is broken. 
(Try "info libbinio" and try to enter the libbinio node).

A fix to the sources would be this patch and to regenerate the info files:

diff -ur libbinio-1.4.orig/doc/libbinio.texi libbinio-1.4/doc/libbinio.texi
--- libbinio-1.4.orig/doc/libbinio.texi 2004-08-18 21:49:11.000000000 +0200
+++ libbinio-1.4/doc/libbinio.texi      2005-09-27 14:43:23.000000000 +0200

+* libbinio: (libbinio).         Binary I/O stream class library @value{VERSION}
 @end direntry


2. The info files are developer docs, so they should better be packaged into the
*-devel package.

3. The pkgconfig file is non-functional:
# pkg-config --libs libbinio
Unknown keyword 'URL' in '/usr/lib/pkgconfig/libbinio.pc'

Non blocking issues:

* IMO, this is questionable design:
# pkg-config --cflags libbinio

Is this really what upstream wants?

* Has this code been tested on big endian targets?
