That seems likely.  Groff has a similar problem, requiring a makeinfo 
version >= 4.8, while MSYS currently provides only 4.3.

FWIW, I've just successfully used MinGW to build the makeinfo component 
from texinfo-4.9, and used it to build texinfo's own documentation set; 
it required only a trivial patch in two source files, to deal with the 
disparity between Microsnot's _mkdir() function, and POSIX's mkdir(). 
However, the remainder of the texinfo-4.9 package is a much more 
daunting proposition, with info itself requiring termcap/terminfo 
capabilities which are not readily supported in Woe32 consoles.

I'll try to create a mingwPORT for makeinfo-4.9, and post it on the 
MinGW download site, this weekend.
