A build of poke-0.90 uses makeinfo:

$ make
/bin/bash /media/develdata/devel/build/poke-0.90/build-aux/missing makeinfo 
--plaintext ../../doc/poke.texi \
          > poke.text

While the GCS allow this (see
it is a best practice to avoid texinfo as a build prerequisite, by packaging
the generated files in the tarball. See

Here is a proposed fix.

It also replaces a 'clean-local' target with a more declarative
'MOSTLYCLEANFILES' variable. Declarative is always better than procedural.
