I'm trying to compile the R statistical program version 3.2.2  from the original sources under FreeBSD 10.2 but the installation program complains that:
root at metbsd:/R-3.2.2 # make info
ERROR: 'texi2any' v5.1 or later needed but missing on your system.
*** Error code 1

make[2]: stopped in /usr/ports/math/R-new/work/R-3.2.2/doc/manual
*** Error code 1

root at metbsd:/R-3.2.2 # which texi2any
root at metbsd:/R-3.2.2 # texi2any --version
texi2any (GNU texinfo) 6.0
