 I see the following -
	if (/mnt/lfs/sources/binutils-2.23.2/missing makeinfo --split-size=5000000 --split-size=5000000 --version) >/dev/null 2>&1; then \
	  for f in bfd.info bfd.info-[0-9] bfd.info-[0-9][0-9] bfd.i[0-9] bfd.i[0-9][0-9]; do \
	    if test -f $f; then mv $f $backupdir; restore=mv; else :; fi; \
	  done; \
	else :; fi && \
	if /mnt/lfs/sources/binutils-2.23.2/missing makeinfo --split-size=5000000 --split-size=5000000   -I ../../../binutils-2.23.2/bfd/doc \
	 -o bfd.info `test -f 'bfd.texinfo' || echo '../../../binutils-2.23.2/bfd/doc/'`bfd.texinfo; \
	then \
	  rc=0; \
	else \
	  rc=$?; \
	  $restore $backupdir/* `echo "./bfd.info" | sed 's|[^/]*$||'`; \
	fi; \
	rm -rf $backupdir; exit $rc
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.

Making info in po

 and it eventually falls through to -

make[3]: Nothing to be done for `info'.
make[3]: Leaving directory `/mnt/lfs/sources/binutils-build/bfd/po'
make[3]: Entering directory `/mnt/lfs/sources/binutils-build/bfd'
make[3]: Nothing to be done for `info-am'.

make[1]: *** [all-bfd] Error 2

 This looks as if makeinfo in now *required*.  Try installing
texinfo on the host.

das eine Mal als Tragödie, dieses Mal als Farce
