AFAIK the ‘texinfo.tex’ file that Automake 1.15 installs is good enough,
as shown by

Can you try running “autoreconf -vfi” with Automake 1.15 installed?

FWIW, I have:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ grep def.texinfoversion build-aux/texinfo.tex 
$ grep def.texinfoversion $(find $(guix build automake) -name texinfo.tex)
$ grep def.texinfoversion ~/src/gnulib/build-aux/texinfo.tex 
$ (cd ~/src/gnulib/ ; git describe)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
