Fedora 8
Insight's incorrectly mistakes makeinfo version 4.11 on fedora as being a lesser version than 4.4.  The problem lies in the way the configure script parses makeinfo's version string.  This (indirectly) prevents insight from building on fedora 8.  Was able to bypass the problem by editing the Makefile after configure and setting MAKEINFO to makeinfo (rather than the "missing" message)
