Your system is missing the libz.so.1 library (possibly not in the proper
path) that your /opt/sfw/bin/makeinfo command wants. This has nothing
to do with Subversion and is a problem with your environment.

Umm because we don't ship autoconf. We just ship a pre-generated
configure. With very few exceptions you shouldn't be running autogen.sh
on a tarball. If you want to run it you need to install the proper
version of autoconf to convert our configure.in to configure.
