texinfo problem

I've noticed that if you try to build a texi file that has an error
you get a warning from the `missing' program:

cd ../automake \
  && /bin/sh /x2/egcs-stuff/automake/automake/lib/missing --run makeinfo `echo 
../automake/automake.texi | sed 's,.*/,,'`
./automake.texi:1675: Next field of node `A Library' not pointed to.
./automake.texi:1821: This node (LIBOBJS) has the bad Prev.
./automake.texi:1726: Prev field of node `Program and Library Variables' not 
pointed to.
./automake.texi:1675: This node (A Library) has the bad Next.
makeinfo: Removing output file `/x2/egcs-stuff/automake/automake/' 
due to errors; use --force to preserve.
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.

This is bad because it is confusing.
