gnome2 branch does not build on my gentoo box

yes I know the gnome2 branch is still in heavy development and 'is not
guaranteed to build ;-)
I've tried today to get it on my gentoo-box running, but the compile
bails out with some texinfo errors. So my question is here 1. is it a
known error with a known workaround ;-) or is there something wrong with
 the gentoo installation (which is not detected by .configure)...
any hints (where to look for the error) are welcome!

my configure line:
./configure \rm -rf $backupdir && mkdir $backupdir && \
for f in[0-9][0-9][0-9] gnucash-design.i[0-9]
gnucash-design.i[0-9][0-9]; do \
  if test -f $f; then mv $f $backupdir; restore=mv; else :; fi; \
done; \
cd "$am__cwd"; \
if /bin/sh
/home/micha/develop/gnucash/build/gnucash-g2-2005-07-23_15-16/missing --run
makeinfo   -I . \
 -o gnucash-design.texinfo; \
then \
  rc=0; \
  cd .; \
else \
  rc=$?; \
  cd . && \
  $restore $backupdir/* `echo "./" | sed 's|[^/]*$||'`; \
fi; \
rm -rf $backupdir; exit $rc
