That would certainly work, but I don't recommend setting HOME to point to 
c:\djgpp\bin.  Many programs, especially ports of GNU software, look at 
HOME and honor its value.  Unless one wants, e.g., to keep their Emacs, 
GDB, Bash, etc. initialization files in the `bin' directory, setting HOME 
there would be a bad idea, very much like making /usr/local/bin your home 
directory on Unix.

Yes, either that, or set INFOKEY to point to c:\djgpp\bin\_info.
