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fastjar because it seems that the logic to deal with an out-of-date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.
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.
