Since the texinfo port was updated to 4.11, gcc42 fails to build. This
is an upstream issue, I found some information here:
| Doing info in libiberty
makeinfo --split-size=5000000 -I../../gcc-4.2.1/libiberty
| WARNING: `makeinfo' is missing on your system. You should only need it if
| you modified a `.texi' or `.texinfo' file, or any other file
| indirectly affecting the aspect of the manual. The spurious
| call might also be the consequence of using a buggy `make' (AIX,
| DU, IRIX). You might want to install the `Texinfo' package or
| the `GNU make' package. Grab either from any GNU archive site.
| make: *** [libiberty.info] Error 1
| make: *** [info-libiberty] Error 1
What should we do about this issue? Wait for 4.2.2 where this seems to
get fixed? Downgrade texinfo to 4.9 and hold back the upgrade? Or patch
the configure/build scripts to accept the new version?
This may affect other ports, too.
