I've created a dummy makeinfo that doesn't work, and am rebuilding with
that as well, to see if I can replicate the problem.

As I said yesterday, I think we should *require* makeinfo for
development builds; if the .info files are not already present in the
$(srcdir), I think you should have to have makeinfo installed.

But, that's an argument for another day, I guess.
