That's what is happening alright. Likely the problems with compiling 
gegl affected the above, but I don't see the connection.

That switch worked, and gegl and gimp compiled successfully.

I began installing LFS and BLFS a few weeks ago, and in the meantime it 
appears that a lot of updates have been made. So I installed texinfo-5.2
according to the latest instructions in SVN-20131105, and then tried 
compiling gegl again. It failed with the same error as before.
