Not really, i'm using it on cygwin, with bash and lot of nice unix 
tools. I got another hint from cygwin list (where i didn't ask for 
help, but another guy got the same problems), i am not so familiar 
with using a shell, so i did not thought of your solution.
In bash i did it like this:
cd /usr/info
for f in *.info; do install-info $f dir; done

Before this, i gunzippd all the zipped files, because i tried to read 
one gzipped, but info didn't open it, maybe the port here is buggy?

Anyway, thanks a lot to all:))
