Are you sure that `&' gives you the desired behavior?  At least with
bash on GNU/Linux, the makeinfo command would be execute in the
previous directory instead of $(srcdir), I think:

$ cd /tmp/current-dir
$ pwd
$ cd /tmp/srcdir & pwd
[1] 20342
[1]   Done                    cd /tmp/srcdir

Bye, Reiner.
