I think we should simply add `man' to the default target and
live with it.  If that means that `makeinfo' is sometimes called
when a user installs Emacs, what's the big deal ?
If the problem is that the user might not have a working `makeinfo',
how about running it with a leading "-" so that an error from
`makeinfo' is ignored by make ?
