7.12.1. Installation of Texinfo

First, fix an issue building the package with Glibc-2.34 or later:

sed -e 's/__attribute_nonnull__/__nonnull/' \
    -i gnulib/lib/malloc/dynarray-skeleton.c

Prepare Texinfo for compilation:

./configure --prefix=/usr


As part of the configure process, a test is made that indicates an error for TestXS_la-TestXS.lo. This is not relevant for LFS and should be ignored.

Compile the package:


Install the package:

make install
