[Buildroot] strange error during make

Hi all

I'm trying to build a toolchain for my SH4-based board. It already has a version of uClinux installed, so I only want the compilation tool chain. I've  run make config, selecting 'No' for most of the non-toolchain related options (if you think this is causing me trouble, I can include the .config in a future post).

Eventually make exists with an error that I can't decipher (see below). There's a warning about makeinfo that doesn't make sense (I didn't alter any .texi of .texinfo files and reinstalled GNU make just to be on the safe side), but I don't know if it is the cause of the error. It appeards as if something has gone awry in the generated directory structure...

If anybody can help I would greatly appreciate it! Sorry if this is a newbie question; I did search the archives but found nothing similar.

Thanks
Izak

Here's the output:

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.
