The building of recent CVS version fails with the following
hacking.texinfo:16: Unknown command `ifnotplaintext'.
hacking.texinfo:22: Bad argument to `end', `ifnotplaintext', using `ifinfo'.
hacking.texinfo:22: Unmatched `@end'.
makeinfo: Removing output file `hacking.info' due to errors; use --force to preserve.
make: *** [hacking.info] Error 1
I am afraid my makeinfo is too old.
$ makeinfo --version
makeinfo (GNU texinfo) 4.1
But when I tried to get a newer makeinfo, I found a file named
| makeinfo is part of the texinfo distribution.
| Get texinfo-*.tar.gz.
| However, all GNU distributions should come with prebuilt info files,
| thus makeinfo should not be needed. If you notice a distribution
| that does not come with *.info files, please report it as a bug.
Since Kaffe's CVS tree is not a GNU distribution, *.info files
being missing may not be a bug. But I think there sould be
some comment on the required texinfo version.
