Description:

makepkg fails to build gcc with the following error:

if [ xinfo = xinfo ]; then \
makeinfo --split-size=5000000 --split-size=5000000 --split-size=5000000 --no-split -I . -I /home/build/mk/gcc/src/gcc-4.7.2/gcc/doc \
-I /home/build/mk/gcc/src/gcc-4.7.2/gcc/doc/include -o doc/cpp.info /home/build/mk/gcc/src/gcc-4.7.2/gcc/doc/cpp.texi; \
fi
/home/build/mk/gcc/src/gcc-4.7.2/gcc/doc/cppopts.texi:806: @itemx must follow @item

I remember that this still worked a few weeks ago, and that texinfo was not at 5.0-1 at that time, so I suspect that is causing it.
This task depends upon

The patch given in http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2012-10/msg02505.html should fix this. I will test and report.

The patch did not work, it did not even apply. I changed it to the attached patch, but without success.

Yeah - there is an extra @itemx that needs to be fixed on the 4.7 branch. (And why did you test with 4.7.2-3?)

Sorry, forgot to run "sudo abs".
