Do you refer to "../info" instead of "$(infodir)"?  Then it was my
mistake when adding the new Gnus manuals.

Probably it should read as follows (as the other entries
e.g. emacs-mime):

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$(infodir)/sieve: sieve.texi
        $(MAKEINFO) sieve.texi
sieve.dvi: sieve.texi
        $(ENVADD) $(TEXI2DVI) $(srcdir)/sieve.texi
$(infodir)/pgg: pgg.texi
        $(MAKEINFO) pgg.texi
pgg.dvi: pgg.texi
        $(ENVADD) $(TEXI2DVI) $(srcdir)/pgg.texi
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Note that Dhruva's change uses $(...) instead of ${...}.  Maybe nmake
(MSVC) doesn't accept the latter.

Bye, Reiner.
