Uh, what?  Ah, ok, you were not the one reporting the problem in the
first place.

It is quite clearly stated that a recent version of makeinfo is
required _if_ you are going to build from CVS _or_ are touching source

If texi2dvi gets called in the process of a normal build straight from
the tarball, this is a bug, I'd say.  In the untouched tarball, for
normal targets makeinfo should not be required.
