4.1.1 build failures due to old makeinfo


Hi,

My attempts to build 4.1.1 on Solaris 8 and HP-UX 11 fail in
fastjar because it seems that the logic to deal with an out-of-date
makeinfo is borked.

We get

WARNING: `makeinfo' is missing on your system.  You should only need it if
         you modified a `.texi' or `.texinfo' file, or any other file
         indirectly affecting the aspect of the manual.  The spurious
         call might also be the consequence of using a buggy `make' (AIX,
         DU, IRIX).  You might want to install the `Texinfo' package or
         the `GNU make' package.  Grab either from any GNU archive site.

But this isn't just a warning; the build terminates.  Also, fastjar.info
and fastjar.1 are newer than fastjar.texi, and GNU Make version 3.79 was
used, so the message is incorrect.

I built a new-enough version of texinfo/makeinfo for both platforms and
am trying again.
