Hi Billa,

It sounds like you are trying to build from a source repo instead of a release tarball.

Building with automake or autoconf is a multi-step process. Run automake on a ".am" file to generate a makefile. Run make on the makefile to build the executable.

Automake has a special "make dist" rule. The dist rule uses automake on a host computer to produce a tarball. This dist tarball requires make and a compiler, but it does not require automake.

Automake should not be required to install automake if you are using
a released version and have not modified the build system.

Could you please explain more, What is the released version ? . Modified

I have created my RISC-V Linux target system on x86, now I am compiling
automake on target system only with native compiler.

In the same way I am trying to install texinfo on target image it
also need automake on target.

Likewise, texinfo should also not require automake to install.
