The problem is that I just upload the changed files. But, I think that
I have found a systematic way to fix this kind of problems:

mkdir -p /build/X
rm -rf /build/X/*
cd /build/X
rm -rf /t/texlive/Build/source.development/TeX/utils/texinfo
p4 sync -f /t/texlive/Build/source.development/TeX/utils/texinfo/...
touch x
make # add write permissiond with p4 edit if autoconf cannot write some
     # file and retry
find /t/texlive/Build/source.development/TeX/utils/texinfo -type f -newer x \
  | xargs p4 edit
p4 submit

This assumes that the right auto-tools are in PATH, so only people who
have these tools can try such a fix. I think that I have correctly
adjusted the timestamps now.
