And also, after you get the failure:

  grep 'install_sh ' `port dir texinfo`/work/texinfo-4.11/Makefile

Here I have:

install_sh = $(SHELL) /opt/local/var/macports/build/_Users_vinc17_wd_macosx_dports_textproc_texinfo/work/texinfo-4.11/build-aux/install-sh

I think you get an incorrect install_sh definition. $(SHELL) is
important as build-aux/install-sh doesn't have the executable bit
