grep-2.5.3 requires makeinfo

The makeinfo.README file in the GNU top-level directory says:

"makeinfo is part of the texinfo distribution.
Get texinfo-*.tar.gz.

However, all GNU distributions should come with prebuilt info files,
thus makeinfo should not be needed.  If you notice a distribution
that does not come with *.info files, please report it as a bug."

When I was building grep-2.5.3 on Solaris 2.10 using GNU make-3.8.1, I
got an error that it could not find makeinfo, implying that this was
not true for this distribution:

/bin/bash: line 9: makeinfo: command not found
make[2]: *** [grep.info] Error 127
make[2]: Leaving directory `/app/grep-2.5.3/doc'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/app/grep-2.5.3'
*** Error code 2
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `all'
