When in cygnus mode, $(MAKEINFO) is redefined by lib/am/
(after being already AC_SUBST'd by AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE), which causes an
'override' warning.  While this is a real bug, it was masking the
"real" checks in txinfo5.test ("texinfo.tex is not required in cygnus
mode, even when info_TEXINFOS is defined").

No, I left the old test in place to avoid removing exposure for the
(still unfixed) bug described above.  The workaround is in the new
test `txinfo5b.test' only.

I hope I've made myself clearer now.
