That should be good.

That's not what I meant.  If you have sh.exe somewhere on PATH, Make
will use it to run commands (although it shouldn't in this case).

So it's not like it succeeds the second time, it always fails for
you.  It's just that the --force switch forces it to build the Info
manual regardless of the error.

No, I meant to ask if there's an environment variable named MAKEINFO
set on your machine.  What does "set MAKEINFO" display if you type it
from cmd and hit Enter?

Also, do you see the same error message if you touch faq.texi and then
run "make info"?
