I tried it all although it didn't help. But your comments were very
valuable because they did point me to the right direction.

There was a makeinfo binary from FreeBSD 5.1 in my path which caused the
problems. This was because I have a TeXLive installation which I took over
from my FreeBSD 5.2 CURRENT system as well as I took over the ~/.zshrc
which had a PATH statement including the "old" FreeBSD 5.2 bin directory
of TeXLive.

Thanks a lot,
