I've just rebuilt the compiler and now I also removed the old
config.cache. Now 'make install' works fine, it's only a 'make info' that
fails on cpp.texi.
I can't exactly remember anymore, how install failed, but I think the old
config.cache caused it and since it works now - problem solved. Thanks. :)

configure:2259: checking for mktemp
configure:2298: checking for makeinfo
configure:2327: checking for modern makeinfo
configure:2333: version of makeinfo is 1.68
configure:2361: checking for recent Pod::Man

BTW the version info wasn't in the config.log before I rerun configure.

bye, Roman
