Well, this isn't a suprise.
CVS is kinda hosed in that if you do a cvs import on a branch and
a particular imported file hasn't ever changed in the main sources,
then the imported version is made the head version.
This leads to inconsistencies until the merge process is finished
(which can can take a while -- a couple hours isn't uncommon for
import/merge sequences involving the gcc subtree.

Hmmm, worked for me last night.
Do you have texinfo/makeinfo/makeinfo.c in your sources?
