As previously mentioned, this is not needed because Info-directory-list
already contains the correct path. OTOH, the docstring of
Info-default-directory-list implies that customizing this variable is
not quite correct.

The problem is the missing dir file. There is a recipe on this thread
for generating it.

Indeed, although it can work by chance if Emacs and your work files are
installed on the same volume.
