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.

Install the makeinfo package for your host or fix binutils
Passing in MAKEINFO=/bin/false to make work too, didn't try
