In a similar vein, I'm seeing some complaints that relate to makeinfo when
trying to build GCC 3.1 for the SGI host.
Under SGI/Irix 6.5, configure (from scratch) complains as follows:
checking for makeinfo... makeinfo
*** Makeinfo is too old. Info documentation will not be built.
I'm running: makeinfo (GNU texinfo 3.12) 1.68.
Certainly, I can upgrade to a newer texinfo, but note the following comment
> Makeinfo is part of the texinfo distribution.
> Get texinfo-*.tar.gz.

I think GCC 3.1 does come with its own *.info files, but the warning coming
out of configure might be confusing to new users who are trying to build GCC
from its source code?
