It works on GNU/Linux because doc/misc/Makefile.in adds the -I../emacs
switch to the `makeinfo' command line; this eliminates the need for
the prefix.  It should work on Windows as well, because
doc/misc/makefile.w32-in does the same.  I'm guessing that the above
problem is due to something local on Martin's system, because it works
for me, and no one else complained until now.
