Older versions of GCC have .texi files that are incompatible with the current version of texinfo.
GCC 4.6 is no longer maintained or supported, so this is not going to be fixed now.
You can workaround the problem by adding MISSING=texinfo to the GCC configure command.
thank's for the comment. sir, can i try with gcc 4.7.1 or latest version of gcc (4.8.2)?. why i am asking this questions is that gcc 4.7.1 is compatible with other sources versions(binutils-2.22,newlib-1.20.0,gdb-7.4) in my tool chain.
i don't know whether gcc 4.8.2 will work fine with above stated versions or not.if you have any idea about this please suggest me. thank you...
Closing as won't fix as we won't fix unsupported released any more.
