Hello. I'm running FreeBSD 5.5 and trying to build autoconfig 2.62 from ports (due iirc to an update to the autotools port in mid-May). Everything goes fine until we reach the doc directory. Unfortunately then the texinfo source upsets makeinfo. I don't understand texinfo source and I can't figure out how to fix it. Can anyone give me some advice? TIA. Here is the (trimmed but still somewhat lengthy) output of the build:
