I would be glad if you explained a bit more. I wrote some instructions for building on w32 and I surely noted you needed a special combination of programs sometimes, like make and makeinfo. I was trying to get things working with MSYS then. I even wrote a perl script to check things. (It does not try to know all working combinations, it just warns if it can't recognize the combination used. For more info se EmacsW32, start at http://www.emacswiki.org/ or go to http://ourcomments.org/Emacs/EmacsW32.html.)

I never noticed any programs named "info" or "install-info" was needed when doing this. What are you referring to?
