If world is built/installed with WITHOUT_INFO=yes, then makeinfo and
install-info are unavailable.  The libtool15 port dies because
it non-optionally does both.


cd ports/devel/libtool15
mv /usr/bin/makeinfo /usr/bin/makeinfo.mv   # to simulate WITHOUT_INFO=yes
mv /usr/bin/install-info /usr/bin/install-info.mv   # to simulate WITHOUT_INFO=yes

If you get past the 'make', then 'make install' will fail
when bsd.ports.mk tries to run install-info.


Check to see if makeinfo exists.  Key off that to decide
whether to try to build/install info files.
