libtool1.5, octave, _update-info-dir
The automakeVER packages generate Makefile.in files that, by default,
include rules for generating .info files using texinfo. So, it's not
that automakeVER itself requires texinfo at runtime, but that the output
files created when using automakeVER require it.
OTOH, automake(wrapper), libtoolVER, and gettext-devel can probably have
that dependency removed.
