I tried the compilation on irix and failed:

make: Entering directory `/usr/local/tex/TeX/utils/texinfo'
cd . && /bin/sh /usr/local/tex/TeX/utils/texinfo/missing --run aclocal-1.6 -I m4

/bin/sh /usr/local/tex/TeX/utils/texinfo/missing --run automake-1.6 --gnu Makefile
cd . && /bin/sh /usr/local/tex/TeX/utils/texinfo/missing --run autoconf
configure.ac:12: error: Autoconf version 2.54 or higher is required
