[Bacula-devel] win32 build problem under Debian Lenny - texinfo

I'm attempting a win32 cross compile under Linux so I can do some plugin
testing, but I'm getting an error.

It looks like binutils-2.16.91-20060119-1-src.tar.gz has to have a valid
version of texinfo, even though at first glance it would cope with it
being missing.

Unfortunately, a 'valid version' means newer than 4.2, but the test is
broken such that 4.11 (which Debian Lenny is using) isn't a valid
version, so things break.

The test is in the 'configure' file and is to egrep the output of
--version with "egrep 'texinfo[^0-9]*([1-3][0-9]|4\.[2-9]|[5-9])'".

This is obviously a problem with upstream (is there a newer binutils we
can use?) but should probably be documented in README.mingw32...

Unless someone has a better solution, I'll try and put together a patch
to fix it.
