problems re: makeinfo '--split-size' arg?

So, i just tried building the head of the recently-created binutils
release branch (for target mips-elf, host x86-linux), and ran into:

/path/.../makeinfo: unrecognized option `--split-size=5000000'

My makeinfo has version:

> makeinfo (GNU texinfo) 4.0
> Copyright (C) 1999 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
> There is NO warranty.  You may redistribute this software
> under the terms of the GNU General Public License.
> For more information about these matters, see the files named COPYING.

And the toplevel 'Makefile.tpl' says:

# For an installed makeinfo, we require it to be from texinfo 4 or
# higher, else we use the "missing" dummy.

While I realize that i should probably be using a newer 'makeinfo', I
cannot easily do so at this time.

I suspect that the top-level Makefile should be modified so that
it uses 'missing' instead of makeinfo if the --split-size option isn't
supported.  (Looks like it was added in rev 4.1 of the texinfo

I suspect that a diff like the one below is in order.  I tried it, and
it seems to DTRT for the version of makeinfo that i have (which is all
i tried 8-).

If approved, could somebody else please check it in for me?  (I hacked
it into my by hand to test it, but i don't have autogen
and wouldn't want to check in an improperly-generated file, etc...)
