It appears that your "make" program is busted: it assumes that
one must rebuild a file if it has the exact same time stamp as
a file that it depends on.  POSIX says that "make" must assume
that a file is up to date unless it is older than a dependency.

To work around the problem, run the command "touch doc/m4.info":
this will modify the timestamp on the file doc/m4.info so that
your "make" knows that it is up to date.
