I’m getting Texinfo errors

Like this?

Your Texinfo is too old. Get a newer one.

On macOS, you can do this with Homebrew.

brew install texinfo
PATH="$(brew --prefix texinfo)/bin:$PATH" make doc

I’m getting weird sed: ...@documenten... warnings in the make doc step?

Like this?

$ make doc
[...]
/usr/local/opt/texinfo/bin/texi2pdf --quiet --clean -o chrono.pdf chrono.texi
sed: 2: "s/\(^\|.* \)@documenten ...": whitespace after branch
sed: 4: "s/\(^\|.* \)@documenten ...": whitespace after label
sed: 6: "s/\(^\|.* \)@documenten ...": undefined label 'found
[...]

Those warnings are produced by older Texinfo programs, like Texinfo 4.8, which is the default on macOS 10.13 and 10.14. Install a newer Texinfo using Homebrew and pull that in explicitly for your build.

brew install texinfo
PATH="$(brew --prefix texinfo)/bin:$PATH" make doc
