Follow-up Comment #7, bug #36903 (project octave):

Carnë, could you try the following with an installed version of Octave on the
same machine that is failing?

test get_first_help_sentence

I'm guessing that this will fail.  Judging from the stderr output it seems
like you are missing makeinfo.

Not requiring Texinfo for building Octave really means not requiring all of
the libraries necessary to produce Postscript and PDF output.  I believe
makeinfo is still a requirement.  If that is the case then maybe we need to
put a check in configure.ac for that in the same way we have a check for sed
or perl.
