As Robin Fairbairns kindly suggested, the pagenote package does a good
job of printing notes at the end of a book, neatly arranged by
chapters.  To convert existing \footnote{} commands to \pagenote{}
commands, one can insert into the preamble the line 
This works well in simple cases. My book has some complications on which
pagenote stumbles, such as how to handle \url{} or \index{} in a note. 
Perhaps its best just to leave notes at the bottom of pages where
readers and LaTeX both expect them.
