Interesting.  For me this completes successfully:
 $ make -C doc
makeinfo --html asdf.texinfo
rpg at rpgoldman-4: ~/lisp/asdf $

When I go to do this by hand,

makeinfo --html --no-split asdf.texinfo
makeinfo --pdf asdf.texinfo
makeinfo asdf.texinfo

work fine.

on the menu bar typically -- I don't edit texinfo often enough to
remember the keyboard commands.

I think it's thanks to Didier Verna that I know this is possible.
