This is correct.  However, if you run the bootstrap.sh script
before running configure and make (as is described in the documentation)
then you should not need to run makeinfo at all.

What does `makeinfo --version'  print?  Mine is 6.1. If yours is 6.1
or newer and you're getting a core dump, then it's a problem in the
port of makeinfo to your system (which is truly wierd, as it's written
in Perl).
