I could reproduce it... the problem is that make wants to refresh
internals.pdf from internals.texi, which won't work (internals.texi
isn't a standalone texi file, and furthermore, internals.pdf isn't built
from it).

address@hidden:~/src/gnutls/doc$ make
TEXINPUTS="../build-aux:$TEXINPUTS" \
        MAKEINFO='/bin/sh /home/jas/src/gnutls/build-aux/missing --run makeinfo 
-I ../doc  -I .' \
        texi2dvi -I ../doc --pdf --batch internals.texi

/home/jas/src/gnutls/doc/internals.texi:28: Missing $ inserted.
<inserted text> 

Debugging this, I find:

Updating goal targets....
 File `' does not exist.
   Prerequisite `internals.texi' is newer than target `internals.pdf'.
  Must remake target `internals.pdf'.

So it seems the problem was caused by having internals.texi be more
recent than internals.pdf...

I solved this by removing internals.texi and moving the contents inside
