 o texinfo-4.0 -

compiles OOTB.

But the make run chokes at the following 

Making all in doc
../makeinfo/makeinfo -I. texinfo.txi
texinfo.txi: Permission denied

*Every* invocation on the resulting makeinfo on a texinfo source file
gives me the permission denied message, although an ls -lt gives

 -rw-rw-rw-   1 vzell    admin      632172 Sep 28 21:38 texinfo.txi

Has anybody tried texinfo-4.0 and got the same results ?
