[tex-live] Build fails for FreeBSD 4.10

Hi Manfred,

    sed 's/__VERSION__/4.7/g' >texinfo.cat
    sed hangs.

BSD make apparently doesn't expand $< in regular rules, annoyingly.

I changed utils/texinfo/util/Makefile.am to avoid this.

I also changed Makefile.in, so if the timestamp gods are feeling
friendly, automake/autoconf won't have to be rerun, just configure.  You
can also just change the line:

	sed 's/__VERSION__/@VERSION@/g' $< >$@
	sed 's/__VERSION__/@VERSION@/g' $(srcdir)/texinfo-cat.in >$@
if you want.

Hope it flies ...
