I'm trying to compile and install binutils+GCC for my machine on my own. I have compiled lastest binutils sources without getting any error, but installation seems to have some problems with gas documentation.

Here is my installation log:

The output is very large and some of the warnings are repeating (they just occur on different lines). It looks like the problem is caused by as.info file, and I guess I'm using old version of some tool for .texi files. I don't know what to do now. Does anybody have any idea what can I do for running the installation successfully?
