bug#6859: address@hidden: corrected .emacs snippet for merging your own

I received this report on bug-texinfo.  Is this correct?  If so, it
seems sad that a recommendation that has been around forever (the
"currently" in Rob's msg) no longer works, but if it has to be, it has
to be.  Please advise ...

Thanks,
Karl

Dear maintainer,

I found that what's suggested in the following section of the Texinfo manual 
doesn't work:

21.2.3 Info Files in Other Directories

* currently:

(require 'info)
(setq Info-directory-list
      (cons (expand-file-name "/home/bob/info")
            Info-directory-list))

* should be:

(add-hook 'Info-mode-hook
          '(lambda ()
             (add-to-list 'Info-directory-list
                          (expand-file-name "~/info"))))

Best regards,

Rob
