Uwe mentioned that the snapshots are working, in contrast to the
release.  And the snapshots are built on Reiner's build server which
likely features a different autoconf version.

On a GNU/Linux system the info files were installed into
/usr/local/info with the old autoconf and now they are installed into
/usr/local/share/info.  That's where the rest of the info files from
Emacs are located as well.

The situation on Windows is different because all Emacs-related files
are saved under a single directory, i.e. there is no distinction
between something like /usr/local and /usr/local/share, solely $PREFIX
is used.

Emacs?  No idea.

If the location for info files on GNU/Linux systems is correct, I
don't think so.  FHS 2.3 specifies that info files should be put below
/usr/share/info, so /usr/local/share looks correct to me.
