Configure script detecting version of makeinfo

 I have on Fedora:
$ makeinfo --version
makeinfo (GNU texinfo) 4.11

Copyright (C) 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
License GPLv3+: GNU GPL version 3 or later <>

 And the configure script of binutils-2.18 check the version by:
    # For an installed makeinfo, we require it to be from texinfo 4.4 or
    # higher, else we use the "missing" dummy.
    if ${MAKEINFO} --version \
       | egrep 'texinfo[^0-9]*([1-3][0-9]|4\.[4-9]|[5-9])' >/dev/null 2>&1; then
      MAKEINFO="$MISSING makeinfo"

 Which does not seem to take into account that the subversion of makeinfo may
contain 2 digits - so makeinfo is declared missing because assumed v4.1 .
 Unfortunately it does not only forget to rebuild documentation, it stops the
building/install (in a local directory) process.

 Sorry, not a specialist of configure, do not know how to fix it.
