Hi Meena,

../../binutils-2.19.1/gas/config/tc-mips.c:3459: error: format not a
string literal and no format arguments

Thanks for mentioning this. We have already fixed the problem in the mainline sources, so you may want to start using them.

After doing above modifications, the above errors are not coming but
make stops with another warning/error messages as shown below:

WARNING: `makeinfo' is missing on your system.  You should only need it
         you modified a `.texi' or `.texinfo' file, or any other file
         indirectly affecting the aspect of the manual.

Makefino is only needed if the info files that are built from the texi files are out of date. The problem here is that both the info files and the texi files have come from the same tarball, so they have the same (approximate anyway) timestamp. One simple solution would be to touch all the info files in your source tree so that the make system believes that that are up to date. eg:

  % cd <top-of-binutils-sources>
  % find . -name "*.info" -exec touch {} \;

Alternatively you could install the texinfo package on your system which will give you a working makeinfo executable.
