make info: makeinfo --html or texi2html


I'm working my way through the LFS book. After correcting all (but one) 'command not found' errors after running 'version-check.sh', here's my output:

jafo21369@jafo21369-desktop ~ $ ./version-check.sh
bash, version 4.1.5(1)-release
/bin/sh -> /bin/dash
Binutils: (GNU Binutils for Ubuntu) 2.20.1-system.20100303

/usr/bin/yacc -> /usr/bin/bison.yacc
bzip2, Version 1.0.5, 10-Dec-2007.
Coreutils: 7.4
diff (GNU diffutils) 2.8.1
find (GNU findutils) 4.4.2
GNU Awk 3.1.6
/usr/bin/awk -> /usr/bin/gawk
gcc (Ubuntu 4.4.3-4ubuntu5) 4.4.3

m4 (GNU M4) 1.4.13
GNU Make 3.81
patch 2.6
Perl version='5.10.1';
GNU sed version 4.2.1
tar (GNU tar) 1.22
./version-check.sh: line 32: makeinfo: command not found
Texinfo:
xz (XZ Utils) 4.999.9beta
Compilation OK

A search in synaptic shows:

texi2html

'Compared to the output of `makeinfo --html', texi2html's output is
more customizable and (subjectively) produces better output by default.' - blurb excerpt

After installing the above utility, I still get the 'makeinfo: command not found' error. My synaptic doesn't have makeinfo --html.
Since the output says 'Compilation OK', should I run with the current configuration, or find makeinfo --html elsewhere and install it?
