I'm not sure if that is really the way to do it, but this excerpt from a
.travis.yml file does the trick for me:

# make sure we have texinfo in fact make sure we have texinfo 5.0 or
# higher. Travis currently runs the old Ubuntu LTS which has an old
# version of texinfo, so we need to install from a ppa
  - sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:marutter/texlive.backport
  - sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:dns/gnu
  - sudo apt-get update -qq
  - sudo apt-get install -y texinfo automake1.14

Hope that helps
