That has been incorrect since at least Emacs 21.4 (I didn't look at
older versions).

That will work, but the advice in doc/misc/info.texi in Emacs seems
better:

  If you wish to customize the Info directory search list for both
  Emacs Info and stand-alone Info, it is best to set the
  @env{INFOPATH} environment variable, since that applies to both
  programs.

Then you don't have to worry about Emacs-specific stuff in the texinfo
documentation.
