I don't have it but the build I did a month ago has the info/*.info files so is 
a mystery what created them a month ago... unless some WSL update (apt update, 
upgrade etc. ) has removed it... :(

I don't want to install the texinfo package which would install a bunch of 
texlive packages (I already have TeXLive installed from its site...)

In any case, thanks for clarification.
