[help-texinfo] not pointed to

Running makeinfo on the following
file gives me an error message.

orion/simian/drivers> cat small.texinfo
\input texinfo @c -*-texinfo-*-
@c %**start of header
@settitle DXml
@c %**end of header

@node Top
@top Top

@end ifnottex

The main program of DXml initializes
an instance of Environment from a list
of XML files and invokes its loop method.
Four kinds of top-level elements are allowed.
* situation:: defines the physical and political situation
* policy::  quantifies good for each team
@end menu

@node situation, policy, policy, Top
@unnumbered situation
yes sit really does define

@node policy, situation, situation, Top
@unnumbered  policy
yes pol really does


orion/simian/drivers> makeinfo small.texinfo
/home/hennebry/local/simian/src/orion/simian/drivers//small.texinfo:8: Next 
field of node `Top' not pointed to (perhaps incorrect sectioning?).
/home/hennebry/local/simian/src/orion/simian/drivers//small.texinfo:22: This 
node (situation) has the bad Prev.
makeinfo: Removing output file 
`/home/hennebry/local/simian/src/orion/simian/drivers/' due to errors; 
use --force to preserve.

I can get makeinfo to preserve by using --force or
by leaving off the @node links and letting makeinfo connect
them as it sees fit instead of how I see fit.
For that matter, what if I wanted to explicity put in
the links that makeinfo would put in automatically?
makeinfo doesn't give the top node a prev link.
When specifying links explicity, there doesn't seem
to be a way to omit any.
