Hi Jude

Have you checked if the binary makeinfo can be found somewhere and if
it is reachable by your PATH? What is the output of these commands?
find /usr /bin /sbin -name makeinfo
echo $PATH
cd ~/org-mode && make info

Michael

For the record, this is a new installation of debian wheezy and 
the makeinfo utility doesn't appear to be in the distribution let alone 
on my system.

  sudo apt-get install texinfo

I usually keep a (somewhat stale) copy of Contents-$arch.gz around and
find necessary packages with

  zegrep bin/makeinfo Contents-$arch.gz

There is (was?) a package that would make package suggestions if a
command isn't found but I can't recall its name.

Yup - I went looking for it after your comment above, something I've been
meaning to do for a while and always deferred: thanks for the push!

you might want to use apt-files

$ apt-file search makeinfo                                                     ~
emacs23-common: /usr/share/emacs/23.3/lisp/textmodes/makeinfo.elc
emacs23-el: /usr/share/emacs/23.3/lisp/textmodes/makeinfo.el.gz

[...]

if updated regularly apt-file's database will contain every files in
every package in debian.

Ah, you are right: it's only useful after the fact.

This only works for installed packages, though, as it searches the files
below /var/lib/dpkg/info, IIRC.
BTW, dpkg forwards that request to dpkg-query.

In which case `apt-cache show goo` may be of help.

Here is a useful command that you can use on Debian and Ubuntu systems
in situations like this:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ dpkg -S makeinfo
texinfo: /usr/bin/makeinfo
octave3.2-common: /usr/share/octave/3.2.4/m/help/__makeinfo__.m
emacs23-common: /usr/share/emacs/23.1/lisp/textmodes/makeinfo.elc
texinfo: /usr/share/man/man1/makeinfo.1.gz
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

It tells you the packages containing files that match the argument
to the command.

Also, on modern Ubuntu, it is often the case that when you try to
execute a command by hand and it is not found, the system will suggest
the installation of a package:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ foo
No command 'foo' found, did you mean:
 Command 'fio' from package 'fio' (universe)
 Command 'goo' from package 'goo' (universe)
 Command 'fop' from package 'fop' (universe)
 Command 'fox' from package 'objcryst-fox' (universe)
 Command 'xoo' from package 'xoo' (universe)
 Command 'zoo' from package 'zoo' (universe)
foo: command not found

$ goo
The program 'goo' is currently not installed.  To run 'goo' please ask your administrator to install the package 'goo'
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

HTH,
Nick

PS I have no idea what the package/command ``goo'' does.

My bad, I was missing texinfo package and thought that had already been 
installed.  Once that got installed, everything works as well as it did 
earlier this year.  If I knew what path that error took, I'd write what 
might be a better error message for it asking for the texinfo package to 
be installed.
