Follow-up Comment #15, bug #42352 (project octave):

Yeah I think the right fix is to install macros.texi with --disable-docs (I
think that was discussed before), since --disable-docs is supposed to be
limited to "I don't have TeX installed".

The reason for the failure to install packages is not limited to each package,
it is because pkg calls doc_cache_create when any package is installed. If
that package has texinfo doc strings, then Octave's doc_cache_create function
requires macros.texi to function. If that functions fails, pkg treats it as a
fatal error and the package is not installed.
