The canonical way to do that is to set the environment variable
INFOPATH outside of Emacs, in the same shell from which you invoke
Emacs.  INFOPATH's value should be a list of Info directories in the
same format as the PATH variable on your system.

Don't play with Info-directory-list, it's not intended to be settable
by the user.
