You don't have the Texinfo package installed, but that package should
not be needed for building and installing a pretest.  There's already
a file info/ert in the tarball, and it is newer than

I think the problem is in doc/misc/Makefile.in in this line:

  $(infodir)/ert: ert.texi $(infodir)

$(infodir) should not be a prerequisite of ert.  If you remove
$(infodir) from this line and re-run "configure", does "make install"
run to completion without problems?

You are missing several libraries that are needed for Arabic shaping.
Here's an excerpt from the file INSTALL that describes these
libraries; you need to install all of the libraries mentioned below to
have Arabic shaping:

  * Complex Text Layout support libraries

  Emacs needs the optional libraries "m17n-db", "libm17n-flt", "libotf"
  to correctly display such complex scripts as Indic and Khmer.
  On some systems, particularly GNU/Linux, these libraries may be
  already present or available as additional packages.  Note that if
  there is a separate `dev' or `devel' package, for use at compilation
  time rather than run time, you will need that as well as the
  corresponding run time package; typically the dev package will contain
  header files and a library archive.  Otherwise, you can download and
  build libraries from sources.

  The sources of these libraries are available by anonymous CVS from

      % cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/cvs/m17n login
      % cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/cvs/m17n co m17n-db
      % cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/cvs/m17n co m17n-lib
      % cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/cvs/m17n co libotf

  For m17n-lib, if you have problems with making the whole package
  because you lack some other packages on which m17n-lib depends, try to
  configure it with the option "--without-gui".
