Judging by the syntax and commands used in the examples, it was the
Makefile.  It would probably be easier to do it from the
configure.bat script, but disabling makeinfo completely is not the
same as anything else we do from the script, so it is not a simple
case of copying some existing code.  Previously when this was
discussed, the conclusion was this:

  In the actual Emacs release, we should include all the Info files
  pre-made.  People who want to build from CVS will have to learn
  to install Makeinfo.

    I'd say the opposite: assume that if the Texinfo files are newer than
    the Info files, makeinfo is _always_ present.  All you risk is an
    error message.

  I agree.  When people install the standard release, the Info files
  will always be newer than the Texinfo files.

  This is not just a good idea, it is also how all past releases have
  been handled.
