Strange, v4.13 does support compressed Info files.  Perhaps try
invoking it from the command line, and see if it reports any errors.

Alternatively, you could say

  make install GZIP_INFO=

in which case the Info files will not be compressed, and install-info
should be happy even if it doesn't support compressed files.
Installing without compressing Info files might be a good idea anyway,
since a previous discussion seemed to indicate Windows users won't
like them compressed.  If you also want not to compress Lisp files,
add GZIP_PROG= to the above command line.
