That would then be a bug introduced since 3.0 in the toplevel support (and
nothing to do with changes to the required makeinfo version, since such a
problem could apply any time if makeinfo is missing or older than the
version that may from time to time be required).  (When removing texinfo
from the source tree before 3.0, I tested the disabling of building info
when working makeinfo wasn't present, and that it was installed iff it was
present in the source tree; it worked fine then.)
