so i just able to build gdb without docs, i did not use the touch command, but 
rather edit the 'configure' file itself.
in the 'configure' script at Line:8039, it does a non-empty string test, so it 
expects a return value from the missing script in case $MAKEINFO was empty.

configure:Line:8039: test -n "$MAKEINFO" || MAKEINFO="$MISSING makeinfo"

MISSING is simply a script in the source directory, that runs the program 
passed as an argument, to check if it exists and gives back advice and a return 
value(127 if missing, 63 if old, 0 if found):

configure:Line:7760: MISSING=`cd $ac_aux_dir && ${PWDCMD-pwd}`/missing

anyway, i delete this test, and i cancel all redirection to the missing script, 
this allows it to fail gracefully from a version check of a non-existant

here is the working sed commands that edits this, but i was unable to overwrite 
the configure file in the build with $(SED) ... '$(1)/configure' for some 
reason?, perhaps you can help me incorporate this in gdb.mk

sed -r 's/test\ \-n\ \"\$\MAKEINFO\"\ \|.*//'
sed 's/MAKEINFO\=\"\$\MISSING\ makeinfo\"/\:/'
