1. Well, there is plenty before that :-), and below please find what 
seems most relevant to the problem in hand:

" ...
WARNING: `makeinfo' is missing on your system.  You should only need it if
          you modified a `.texi' or `.texinfo' file, or any other file
          indirectly affecting the aspect of the manual.  The spurious
          call might also be the consequence of using a buggy `make' (AIX,
          DU, IRIX).  You might want to install the `Texinfo' package or
          the `GNU make' package.  Grab either from any GNU archive site.

"

2. Next, I tried Moritz Weichert's suggestion, submitting "make -k" 
instead of "make": the WARNING did not show up, and it ends like this:
"...
configure: updating cache ./config.cache
configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: creating Makefile
config.status: creating po/Makefile.in
config.status: creating config.h
config.status: executing depfiles commands

config.status: executing default-1 commands
config.status: creating po/POTFILES
config.status: creating po/Makefile

make[1]: Nothing to be done for `all-target'.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/lfs/sources/binutils-build'
make: *** [all] Error 2
"

Where do I go from here?

Best regards.
Vasco
