Compilation of devel/gtexinfo fails with

--- texi2dvi.1 ---
 help2man  --name="convert Texinfo documents to DVI or PDF"  ../util/texi2dvi 
help2man: can't get `--help' info from ../util/texi2dvi
Try `--no-discard-stderr' if option outputs to stderr
*** [texi2dvi.1] Error code 1

Running "texi2dvi --help" yields:

$ ./work.pkgsrc-i86/texinfo-5.1/util/texi2dvi --help
./work.pkgsrc-i86/texinfo-5.1/util/texi2dvi[1979]: no closing quote

The shell script is 1978 lines long. Maybe this is closer to the real error:

$ bash ./work.pkgsrc-i86/texinfo-5.1/util/texi2dvi --help
./work.pkgsrc-i86/texinfo-5.1/util/texi2dvi: line 1106: syntax error near 
unexpected token `'

A second run of the build and installation succeeds, although with a zero bytes 
sized man1/texi2dvi.1.
