There is a new releas 3.7.6:

Comment 3 Dmitry Sivachenko freebsd_committer 2020-05-07 09:48:45 UTC
Does it still an issue?  I fixed that 2019-11-21 but forgot about this PR.
Comment 4 Victor Sudakov 2020-05-07 09:52:12 UTC
Of course it still is:

# pkg info -o recode
recode-3.6_14                  converters/recode
# file /usr/local/share/info/recode.info
/usr/local/share/info/recode.info: empty
Comment 5 Dmitry Sivachenko freebsd_committer 2020-05-07 10:05:54 UTC
Well, something is probably broken in your install then...
I just re-checked and this file is not empty for me.

What is the output for 'makeinfo recode.texi' run in ports/converters/recode/work/Recode-3.6/doc/ ?
Comment 6 Victor Sudakov 2020-05-07 10:13:13 UTC
(In reply to Dmitry Sivachenko from comment #5)
Dunno, the package I showed above was installed from the default FreeBSD package repository on my desktop system. Never bothered to compile from ports.

Would you like me to run poudriere testport on converters/recode ?
Comment 7 Dmitry Sivachenko freebsd_committer 2020-05-07 10:15:13 UTC
Well, may be you are using an old package? Built before the fix was committed?
Can you please try something recently built?

A fresh poudriere build log

Complains about WARNING: `makeinfo' is missing on your system.
Comment 9 Victor Sudakov 2020-05-07 10:28:06 UTC
root@121amd64-default:/wrkdirs/usr/ports/converters/recode/work/Recode-3.6/doc # makeinfo recode.texi
makeinfo: Command not found.
root@121amd64-default:/wrkdirs/usr/ports/converters/recode/work/Recode-3.6/doc # 

As recent port as I can get. Probably a missing build dependency on makeinfo somewhere.
Comment 10 Victor Sudakov 2020-05-07 14:31:01 UTC
The build should probably depend on print/texinfo. I have not found makeinfo in the base system either in 11.3 or in 12.1

If for some reason you already have makeinfo (from print/texinfo) installed when building recode, you'll not be able to reproduce the problem.
