You're using the 2.0.30 tar-ball, aren't you?

Hmm. Doesn't look like the make call.

Seems to succeed.

Which texi2dvi do you have? You'll get it calling "texi2dvi --version"

Hmm, strange. Without more information (apply "M-x tramp-bug") there's
no chance to analyze.

But maybe you can download the recent CVS version of Tramp at first?
There I have adapted the Makefile that it skips texi2dvi if it hasn't
a proper version.

If you do so, please read the (new) INSTALL file, 'cause there are
some changes.
