@/ is a recently added texinfo command for optional line-break, and
since it is not understood by makeinfo 4.2 that explains your error
message.  We ought to patch bootstrap.conf to list the minimum
prerequisite makeinfo that we actually do support during bootstrap
(right now bootstrap.conf doesn't have any version check on makeinfo).

Meanwhile, as Paul said, makeinfo should only be required during
bootstrap, not when building from a tarball.
