Sigh. makeinfo does support -I. the user manual on texinfo does not
mention this, because all the TeX tool user manuals are written in
complete ignorance of command line options, for some historical reason
(TeX is a really old language).

On the other hand, texi2dvi does not support -I, but it does support the
environment variable TEXINPUTS.

So this problem is now fixed; tested on Debian and MinGW.

'make distcheck' is now failing on something later.
