I've got the same problem on my RHEL-based system. Seems like the root
of problem in search path for commands setted up by Croostool-NG
environment -- local script 'makeinfo' placed in path before the real
'makeinfo'. This script trying to execute 'makeinfo --force' command
and, voilà -- we got the infinite recursion!
Quck & dirty solution -- place the real path of makeinfo utility
(usually /usr/bin/makeinfo) in crosstool-NG.sh. Just put attached to
this mail patch in directory:
and rerun make -- hopefully your problem will be solved.
