"Fail" in what way?  Can you be more specific about the problems you
envision, especially in the context of visiting Info files with
commands such as "C-x C-f" or similar?

Btw, these files don't exist in the Emacs's info/ directory.  I see
there 'calc', 'calc-1', 'calc-2' etc. instead, both in the DOS build,
the Windows build, and the GNU/Linux build.

I have no idea why Glenn has them with these extensions; e.g.,
doc/misc/calc.texi clearly says

  @setfilename ../../info/calc
