Yup, that’s it exactly. macOS 10.12 comes with Texinfo 4.8.

As far as I can tell ./configure is looking for any version above 4.6.
I guess this is wrong, or the macOS version is broken.

For reference, I used homebrew to install 6.3 and this fixed it:

    brew install texinfo
    brew link texinfo --force

There are some warnings about linking in the upgraded version, but I
can’t really see what difference it makes, and I’m not sure whether
people building Emacs within homebrew itself will need to perform that
step.
