Info-directory-list contains only the directory where the Emacs info
files are installed (under ".../msys32/mingw32/share/info") while
INFOPATH contains the directories where the MSYS2 info files are, for
instance .../msys32/usr/share/info (IIRC).

Since Emacs is a MinGW ("native") application it is expected that it
ignores the existence of the MSYS2 ("cygwinized") directories unless
something tells it otherwise, such as INFOPATH in this case.
