That's because releases have the info files pre-built.  The patch
updated the documentation source but not all of the resulting files, so
you need the tools to build them (unless you don't care, in which case
you can just use ``make -i'' to ignore the errors).  makeinfo is part of
the GNU texinfo package; see
for details of how to get GNU software.
