The sources look OK, now.

Yep, but somehow, the various files are older than, and then make invokes automake, which should be 1.2f,
but this hasn't been released so far. My automake here is version 1.2e 
and produces totally broken files.

Perhaps, all people using CVS and having problems with the texinfo
files should do this:

$ cd .../egcs/texinfo
$ cvs update -P -d
$ touch acinclude.m4 aclocal.m4; sleep 1
$ touch configure; sleep 1
$ cd po
$ touch; sleep 1
$ touch; sleep 1
$ touch *.po *.gmo; sleep 1
$ touch texinfo.pot; sleep 1
$ touch cat-id-tbl.c; sleep 1
$ touch stamp-cat-id; sleep 1
$ cd ..
$ find . -name -print | xargs touch

This should give all texinfo related files consistent timestamps.
