So that .dvi, .ps, .pdf files can be built, Automake requires the file texinfo.tex to appear either in the same directory as the file that lists the .texi files, or in the auxiliary directory if you used AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR in (see Finding configure Input). automake supplies texinfo.tex if the --add-missing is given. If you set the TEXINFO_TEX variable (see Variables for Texinfo), it overrides the location of the file and turns off its installation into the source, as well as its distribution.

The option no-texinfo.tex can be used to eliminate the requirement for the file texinfo.tex. Use of the variable TEXINFO_TEX is preferable, however, because that allows the dvi, ps, and pdf targets to still work.
