Which texinfo?  tools/texinfo, or gnu/usr.bin/texinfo?
What were the few lines of error messages around the problem?

(There have been issues with some of the "dist" GNU Makefile's,
cvs checkout timestamps, etc.  I've been going through the tree and
removing these when we find them, since we generally don't want rules
which re-run autoconf or bison or whatever on a source file...)
