With texinfo-5.1, xemacs-21.4.22-r2 fails to build custom.info:
cd /var/tmp/portage/app-editors/xemacs-21.4.22-r2/work/xemacs-21.4.22/man && make info

Already reported upstream, see URL.
Thanks for the report.
A patch for 21.5 has been pushed upstream so the problem is known.
I have raised the question upstream if 21.4 will get a patch in the same way as 21.5 and for more details what needs to be changed to be compatible with texinfo 5.x.
Any news on this? texinfo-5.1 could be needed in stable soon :/

Patch for xemacs-21.4.22-r3
Attached patch fixes the build failure in xemacs-21.4.22-r3 for me. I've tested with both texinfo-5.1 and -5.2.
Basically, this is a backport of the upstream patch for 21.5: https://bitbucket.org/xemacs/xemacs/commits/d11efddf3617c0c74b8e0a029803f248c7630a61 with one additional change needed for 21.4.
Thanks for the patch and for testning. I'm out travelling and will attend to this in a few days.
app-editors/xemacs-21.4.22-r4 containing the attached patch has been committed.
Arch teams, please stabilize: app-editors/xemacs-21.4.22-r4
Stable for HPPA.
Builds and runs fine on x86. Rdeps also build fine. Please mark stable for x86.
Stable on alpha.
ppc64 stable. Closing.
