I noticed that the bug report that Mike linked suggests using the package avoids this issue.

I thought it said the opposite, that the bundle hit the same issue. The
problem is the pkg installation stage that runs makeinfo. So unpacking
the package directy and setting the path manually would avoid that, but
any "pkg install" command always runs makeinfo.

Oops, you're right. This seems fairly serious then: some/most/all (?) Windows users cannot install the symbolic package without doing some manual patching, and the process by which they do so is not explicitly documented... :( Or have I still missed the point and this is "merely" some noisy warnings?

An updated Octave binary for Windows should either have this Perl module
patched or provide a newer Perl to fix it.

+1 for that.
