Anyway you could fix this by providing a patch file in the patches subdirectory
of such a pkg. The patch could either be on the TeXinfo sources or on the
pre-generated .info files included -I guess- in the emacs 21 tarball.
I'd prefer the former but then I bet you'll need a newer makeinfo
command. See section 10.24 of a recent pkgsrc/Packages.txt.
Perhaps Emacs' makefile use the elisp included makeinfo "compiler" though...
