building nios2 gcc from sources on RHEL 5

Honored Contributor II

FWIW, on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, I was building gcc from the altera source  

code, but the gnu build install step was failing due to some issue with the texinfo  

package. I upgraded texinfo to 4.13 by building from sources but this didn't fix  

the issue. I did eventually locate this email which appears to be relevant. 


I dropped the gcc/doc/include/texinfo.tex file from gcc 4.4.7 into my 

Altera 11 gcc 4.1 source tree, and viola the gcc install issue was resolved.
