  I get a "Don't know how to make maintainer-clean" message when I run
  `nmake maintainer-clean'.  I made the mistake of locating a makefile that
  DID know how and it emptied my emacs\info directory.  nmake bootstrap
  completes successfully but it never rebuilds the info files.

It does rebuild them.  But you may have to run `make install' after
`make bootstrap' to install them in the place an installed Emacs looks
for them.

make maintainer-clean

As I said above, this gets an error.

make bootstrap

Completes successfully but there is never an attempt to create info files.
I do have makeinfo and fortunately I can make them manually (or I'd be hurting 
If nmake should make them then it seems broke.

sudo make install

should have properly updated all your info files as well as everything else.

Sounds like you think this is a bug then since that doesn't happen.
But I don't see configure looking for makeinfo so I don't see how this should
