This looks suspicious:

  FAIL: distcheck-override-infodir.test (exit: 2)

  distcheck-override-infodir: running install-info --version
  Debian install-info 1.10.21.  Copyright (C) 1994,1995

Why do you have Debian install-info installed on Mac OS X?  It is not used
anymore even on Debian:

  $ cat /etc/debian_version

  $ install-info --version
  This is not dpkg install-info anymore, but GNU install-info
  See the man page for ginstall-info for command line arguments
  install-info (GNU texinfo) 4.13

and in fact Automake has stopped trying to cater to Debian install-info since
the release 1.11.2.

What happens if you re-run the failed tests after defining 'AM_UPDATE_INFO_DIR'
to "no" in the environment?  Like this:

  $ cd tests && AM_UPDATE_INFO_DIR=no make -jN recheck
