Follow-up Comment #8, bug #36903 (project octave):

What do you mean by installed? That I need to run make install? Does
./run-octave suffice? If so

sh: makeinfo: not found
warning: get_first_help_sentence: couldn't run makeinfo on
  ***** assert (get_first_help_sentence ('get_first_help_sentence'), "Return
the first sentence of a function's help text.")
!!!!! test failed
assert (get_first_help_sentence ('get_first_help_sentence'),"Return the first
sentence of a function's help text.") expected
Return the first sentence of a function's help text.

Sorry, when I wrote texinfo on the title and bug report I meant makeinfo
(texinfo is the name of the Debian package that has it. and I keep confusing

causing this.

My idea of the bug is whether configure should check for it and disable help
somehow, or if it should be counted as a dependency.
