I have no sh.exe on PATH or elsewhere.

But it somehow stops after the error the first time and builds the
remaining files only the second time (at least I think so).

It tells me that the variable is not defined.

After removing the calc info files I see

C:\emacs\trunk\nt>make info
make   -C ../doc/emacs info
make[1]: Entering directory `C:/emacs/trunk/doc/emacs'
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `info'.
make[1]: Leaving directory `C:/emacs/trunk/doc/emacs'
make   -C ../doc/misc info
make[1]: Entering directory `C:/emacs/trunk/doc/misc'
makeinfo --force -I./../emacs faq.texi
makeinfo --force calc.texi
calc.texi:10: @include `emacsver.texi': No such file or directory.
make[1]: *** [../../info/calc] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `C:/emacs/trunk/doc/misc'
make: *** [info-gmake] Error 2


Touching calc.texi doesn't change anything BTW (I'm completely ignorant
in this regard).
