tried to find similar problem... but it looks like nobody got it.

so, I'm trying to make different flavours with installing software from ports.
and for example, i can't install ports-mgmt/portdowngrade cause of:

Making all in m4
Making all in tests
===>  Staging for gettext-runtime-
===>   gettext-runtime- depends on executable: indexinfo - not found
===>   gettext-runtime- depends on executable: indexinfo - not found
*** Error code 1

make[3]: stopped in /basejail/usr/ports/devel/gettext-runtime
*** Error code 1

make[2]: stopped in /basejail/usr/ports/devel/gettext-tools
*** Error code 1

make[1]: stopped in /basejail/usr/ports/devel/subversion
*** Error code 1

make: stopped in /basejail/usr/ports/ports-mgmt/portdowngrade

and this is sick, cause after starting jail I may see it:
root@erlang18_09:~ # whereis indexinfo
indexinfo: /usr/local/bin/indexinfo /usr/ports/print/indexinfo
also, i had tried to install indexinfo via pkg and via /usr/ports/print/indexinfo
but it doesn't help

what do you recommend to install this?

I have tried to build ports-mgmt/portdowngrade with ports-mgmt/poudriere and it works. The lines related to print/indexinfo are

Therefore it should work as you have expected already. May be the exact command you have entered would give some idea what went wrong.
P.S. I have edited the text a few times because of tag errors I did not found sooner.
