Why did you make this change?  lispref/Makefile.in still removes the
results of makeinfo, evidently to support a separate lispref
packaging.  Why shouldn't makefile.w32-in follow suit?

Maybe I've misunderstood lispref/Makefile.in. The motivation for my
change is that, in my in-place installation, maintainer-clean (from
lispref/Makefile.w32-in) was deleting elisp and elisp-* from lispref/,
not info/, so it nuked elisp-cover.texi.

maintainer-clean has clean as precondition, and clean already does:
        - $(DEL) $(infodir)/elisp*

so, what's the difference? It is an issue for non-inplace installations?

I can revert my patch, but then maintainer-clean will have to be changed to

maintainer-clean: clean
        - $(DEL) $(infodir)/elisp $(infodir)/elisp-* elisp.dvi elisp.oaux

unless I'm mistaken.
