Are you compiling fom source? It looks like you'll need the "makeinfo"
and perhaps the "install-info" binaries on your system. Install these,
then in your emacs source directory,
  1. make info

If all here goes well (there ought to be an ./info directory full of
info files), you can go through the build steps again after doing a 
  make distclean
and you should be good to go!

If you installed Almighty Emacs through a package manager, shame on
your package manager! Be brave, and compile from source.

- mgsk.
