Anyone who once installed an old Texinfo 4.8 port to Windows, and
didn't bother to delete ginstall-info.exe, will have it.  That port
came with both install-info.exe and ginstall-info.exe, for reasons I
cannot fathom.

If that's the only reasonable scenario besides Debian, perhaps we
could add something specific to Windows to countermand this, so that
we could still be friendly to Debian?
