The error messages you report have nothing to do with the texinfo documentation of BBDB.  Instead, they suggest to me that something is broken in your tex installation. Can you create the texinfo documentation for any other packages?

Hi, I tried to build the bbdb. After configuring: the "make" fails for the
documentation, flagging a number of errors. the first one is:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Making all in doc
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/msteffen/Collectionofreposes/bbdb-git/doc'
TEXINPUTS=".:$TEXINPUTS" \
MAKEINFO='/bin/sh /home/msteffen/Collectionofreposes/bbdb-git/missing makeinfo   -I .' \
texi2dvi --pdf --batch  --build-dir=bbdb.t2p -o bbdb.pdf  \
bbdb.texi
/usr/bin/texi2dvi: texinfo.tex appears to be broken:
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.6-1.40.14 (TeX Live 2014/dev)
 restricted \write18 enabled.
I can't find the format file `etex.fmt'!

Afterwards (perhaps a subsequent error):

This is a summary of all `failed' messages:

Any suggestions what is wrong? Note that doing

      tex bbdb.texi

works fine. Note also that in latex, I can use the etex-class (but I don't
know if that's related to tex/texinfo).

Thanks, Martin
