Thanks for the note.
The solution is to install a tex system such as texlive.
I can't understand why that is the solution. TeX Live has nothing to do
with makedoc. makedoc is a tiny self-contained program in the info/
subdirectory of the texinfo source. It has to be built and run
natively, rather than cross. There is code in texinfo's configure[.ac]
to automatically do a subsidiary native configure and build to handle
I don't doubt the situation can be improved, but installing TeX Live
can't be the answer wrt makedoc. Something else must have been going on.
P.S. Gavin, I wonder if we could get rid of the whole cross-compiling
native_tools/TOOLS_ONLY complexity by replacing the C implementation of
makedoc with a Perl/whatever implementation that does not need to be
compiled. Just if you feel like looking into it ...
