Hmm, I just tried running synth on my test system again (this is the system
that I successfully built and install texinfo on just a bit ago) and synth
still fails with the same build errors as before. I'm not all that familiar
with synth, but it appears that it may be working with some old stuff.

I have to say, I haven't been a fan of perl since Larry Wall first came out
with it back in the 80s, and this sort of mess isn't improving my opinion any.
