I am confused. Normally, when ./configure finds errors, it would not
produce a Makefile, so that you cannot run 'make' at all (i.e. it would
immediately exit, complaining there is no Makefile).

Can you mail the output ./configure prints? If it finds 'makeinfo' missing
on your system, it should have complained about it.

If the problem is indeed that 'makeinfo' is not installed on your system,
install it...
