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.

Quote : Texinfo-4.8

The missing '/usr/bin/makeinfo' is usually provided
by the package 'texinfo' .... please install the package,
and things should work then.
Which Linux, name, version is used as host ? ?
.....

Required information when asking an LFS question
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/...skforhelp.html
..... 1.5.1 ......
