Buddypress installation wizard could not finish due to strict security setting on webhost

I tried to instally buddypress on my wordpress site which is hosted by
Activating the plugin worked, but when I started the installation wizard and arrived at step 3 - Permalinks - I got the following error:

Warning: phpinfo() has been disabled for security reasons in /home/htdocs/wp-includes/functions.php on line 2848

I could not get beyond this point and thus couldnt finish buddypress installation. My provider has a special focus on security and thus disabled access to phpinfo. Buddypress should not only check if phpinfo is available but also if it can be accessed.

BuddyPress doesn't use phpinfo() anywhere. I've just checked.

harmr, can you scan inside your plugins and themes folder to see what you can find that uses phpinfo()?
