unnumberedsec within enumerate in doc/gpl.texi ?

I'm trying to replicate a minimalist build pattern on a debian testing

I take the following steps:

 git clone --branch STABLE-BRANCH-1-4 git://git.gnupg.org/gnupg.git
 cd gnupg/
 ./configure --enable-maintainer-mode && make

and, i get the following error message when trying to compile the
documentation.  i find this weird, because i can't imagine that gpl.texi
has changed much:

make[2]: Entering directory `/tmp/cdtemp.4EuYnI/gnupg/doc'

restore=: && backupdir=".am$$" && \
	am__cwd=`pwd` && CDPATH="${ZSH_VERSION+.}:" && cd . && \
	rm -rf $backupdir && mkdir $backupdir && \
	if (makeinfo --version) >/dev/null 2>&1; then \
	  for f in gnupg1.info gnupg1.info-[0-9] gnupg1.info-[0-9][0-9] gnupg1.i[0-9] gnupg1.i[0-9][0-9]; do \
	    if test -f $f; then mv $f $backupdir; restore=mv; else :; fi; \
	  done; \
	else :; fi && \
	cd "$am__cwd"; \
	if makeinfo -I . --css-include=./texi.css -D gpgone  -I . \
	 -o gnupg1.info gnupg1.texi; \
	then \
	  rc=0; \
	  CDPATH="${ZSH_VERSION+.}:" && cd .; \
	else \
	  rc=$?; \
	  CDPATH="${ZSH_VERSION+.}:" && cd . && \
	  $restore $backupdir/* `echo "./gnupg1.info" | sed 's|[^/]*$||'`; \
	fi; \
	rm -rf $backupdir; exit $rc

the following diff seems to resolve the error message:

Is there something wrong with my initial build invocation, or with my
build environment?  i'm having a hard time believing that doc/gpl.texi
is likely to have a bug after all these years.
