Are you asking that Emacs Info reader displays "S<" as Ŝ and "/o" as
ø?  Or are you asking that the Info files themselves include non-ASCII
characters?

What goes into the Info files depends on the directives in the Texinfo
sources and on the command line arguments used when makeinfo was
invoked to produce the Info files.  You will see in the `doc'
directory that we already invoke makeinfo with --enable-encoding
switch in some cases.
