Next, "make check" fails because info/pseudotty.c cannot be possibly

It compiles on Cygwin but apparently doesn't work the way it should. All
the interactive tests either hang or time out.  I ended up editing
info/Makefile.am and removing all the interactive tests, so that I could
run "make check".

I then found quite a few tests that failed, but I haven't yet had a
chance to look into these failures.

I've now looked at the test failures, and most of them are in tp/tests and are due to the fact that I was using an out-of-tree build. If you look at line 24 of tp/tests/test_scripts/formatting_texi_glossary.sh, for example, it calls ../"$srcdir"/"$command", which is not likely to exist if $srcdir is an absolute path (and in any case is not the right directory).

The remaining test failures are in install-info/tests, and are ii-0041, ii-0050, and ii-0054. These are the ones that involve a gzipped dir file. In all three cases the failure was

  gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file

Could the problem be the one discussed here?
