Quite true.

Hm.  I just looked over the respective Makefile and observed, how
TEXIPWD is used:


By escaping `$', the evaluation of variable TEXIPWD is up to the
executing shell (I think).  This means, if there is some purpose
of setting TEXIPWD, the user is responsible for setting this
environment variable.  However, I have no clue, why the extension
of that variable has to be retarded.  OK, there is the
possibility to discard changes to that variable by make itself.

Anyway, I suppose `/bin/texi2dvi' fails to pass the texinfo
include path to TeX (MiKTeX) in a form, that is understood by
TeX.  I'd try to use MiKTeX's texi2dvi.
