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.
Usually, makeinfo is a part of the texinfo package.  It seems that texinfo
should be a requirement and that it should provide makeinfo.
