makeinfo is not always available. If someone (TM) wants to produce
some makefiles and configure.bat rules that will build the manuals
when makeinfo is available, and not produce an error (or better, build
the manuals with Emacs if that works) when makeinfo is not installed,
it would be a most welcome improvement.

The easiest approach is probably to use the existing Makefile.in, and
assume that makeinfo is not available when building with nmake/msvc.
