Well, on closer inspection I can reproduce it.  It is due to the
install-info transition and depends on whether the dpkg version of
install-info or the one from the new install-info package is found,
i.e. on the value of PATH.

With /usr/sbin before /usr/bin in $PATH (as in debuild or on the
buildds) everything is fine, but running
"debian/rules build && fakeroot debian/rules binary" as a normal user
without /usr/sbin in $PATH fails:

| rm /usr/local/src/deb-src/emacs23/emacs23-23.1+1/debian/emacs23-common/usr/share/info/emacs-23/dir
| rm /usr/local/src/deb-src/emacs23/emacs23-23.1+1/debian/emacs23-common/usr/share/info/emacs-23/dir.old
| rm: cannot remove `/usr/local/src/deb-src/emacs23/emacs23-23.1+1/debian/emacs23-common/usr/share/info/emacs-23/dir.old': No such file or directory
| make: *** [install] Error 1

ISTM the fix for the problem is to go through debian/rules and replace
all "rm $SOMETHING" calls with "rm -f $SOMETHING".
