Judging from the .texi extension and the name of the failing program, I
suppose it's intended to generate the GNU Texinfo documentation from
asciidoc sources, Git uses for documentation.
Most probably you do not need this, so I'd pick one of two routes:
1) Study the Git makefile(s) and just disable building the target for
   preparing Texinfo manuals, if such a target exists.
2) Create a symlink /usr/local/bin/docbook2x-texi pointing to /bin/true
   or create a script /usr/local/bin/docbook2x-texi which would do
   noting and just exit successfully, and try running
   `make install-doc`.
