I had to copy texinfo.tex in from the automake-1.13 directory manually
for the make everything in Doc/ to complete. After that I ran into

% make targz-doc
Processing directory ./Config...
Processing directory ./Etc...
mkdir -m 755 -p -- [...]/zsh-5.0.7/./Etc
./Util/mkdisttree.sh: can't find file ./Etc/FAQ*.html
make: *** [zsh-5.0.7-doc.tar.gz] Error 1
Makefile:401: recipe for target 'zsh-5.0.7-doc.tar.gz' failed

So I tried
% cd Etc
% make
cd . && yodl2txt FAQ.yo && mv -f FAQ.txt FAQ
FAQ.yo:1: Can't read `txt'
/usr/bin/yodl indicates failure!
make: *** [FAQ] Error 1
Makefile:191: recipe for target 'FAQ' failed

Which is a confusing error message.
