    LFS Problem


    Hello, I'm trying to run the "make html" on mpfr in section 6.14 in the LFS-Book-6.5, but I keep getting the error, "/sources/mpfr-2.4.1/missing: line 54: makeinfo: command not found
    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.
    make[1]: *** [mpfr.html] Error 1
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/sources/mpfr-2.4.1'
    make: *** [html-recursive] Error 1
    "
    I'm using ubuntu 8.04.4 for my build system.

    Do you have "make" package properly installed ?

    If you found errors LFS book report it to their mailing list

    which will help others too.

    It seems to me that I forgot to run make install and when the problem came up it was too late to reinstall it, but I was still able to finish building the system because that was for documentation which is not needed to function.
