Yup.  On the machine where I build the snapshots...

bridgekeeper$ ./configure --help | grep 'datarootdir\|infodir'
  --infodir=DIR          info documentation [PREFIX/info]
bridgekeeper$ head -n3 configure
#! /bin/sh
# Guess values for system-dependent variables and create Makefiles.
# Generated by GNU Autoconf 2.59 for auctex 11.84.

There has been a discussion about this on emacs-devel or the

(I'd suggest we just document the problem.)
