The doc for Info-default-directory-list says:

| Once Info is started, the list of directories to search

IIUC, this implies that INFOPATH has to encompass *all* the places where
info files should be searched for. In my case, I have the following in
my .profile:

- --8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
# standard places
# org info dir
- --8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
