Thanks for testing this. The problem is that jrtangle should not be
running in the first place. It is written in GNU awk and won't work
with other versions of awk.

'make' is considering texindex.awk to be out of date and that it needs
to be rebuilt. However, when I extract texinfo-6.5.90.tar.xz, ti.twjr
has an earlier modification time than texindex.awk, and texindex.awk
is not rebuilt.

If I get the chance I will try to see if I have access to an OpenBSD
system I could test this on.
