Let me elaborate: the .info files were never in the repository.
All that was there was a (pointless) info/dir file.
That's auto-generated now when needed.
You had a conflict when you updated from bzr, because bzr wanted to
remove the info directory, but you had non-versioned files in there, so
it could not.
Deal with the conflict and you will find that literally nothing has
changed about building Emacs from bzr in any meaningful way.
