bug#3982: Emacs 23.1 configure/Makefile: MAKEINFO=no inconsistent with t

Hello,

for http://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/emacs/emacs-23.1.tar.gz
on KUbuntu 6.06, after running configure, I got a Makefile with

  MAKEINFO=no

(which seems to originate from configure line 5319), but all the tests
in the Makefile compare to "off", like

  test "$(MAKEINFO)" = "off";

Therefore "make install" failed with

  makeinfo is missing - cannot build manuals

After manually adapting Makefile to

  MAKEINFO=off

"make install" it worked fine.

==> either configure should create "Makefile=off",
    or the Makefile tests should check for "no".

Thanks for Emacs!

Helmut
