You need a texinfo installation to make the docs, which should be
available as a package.

I've run across the missings dependency for making the FAQ before, but
if Yodl is set up actually making it should be unproblematic.  There may
be some version mixing or installation problem --- I can see the same
problem here, but it works at home.  We don't depend on the normal Yodl
converters in the main documentation which is why this is hard to
provoke.  It seems to be a path problem --- it's not looking in
/usr/share/yodl, but if I copy those files locally it works.
