There is a script. First you would only have to turn that set of raster
images into a ps(.gz) or pdf document. I believe the site will turn
those to djvu. I have done that with a few odd manuals, so I thought
that might be one way.

It is not guaranteed that the OCR will work or work well. For some
things it does and for some it doesn't. But that is a simple way to
access the non-free encoders and do the (or a) conversion with
relatively little pain. Something to start with maybe.

Naturally. But as already mentioned, that means much more manual writing
work (and/or some other OCR).
