In this case, makeinfo should have reported an error (and failed
unless you've specified --force).

Looks like it is.  For one thing, unless extension is supplied to the
@image command, we wouldn't know the correct filename (makeinfo checks
for .png, .jpg and .gif).  For another, @image will search all include
paths (the -I argument of makeinfo) for the file, so if the file
doesn't exist at any of the paths, we don't know which one to use.

So the only situation when we can reliably refer to a non-existent
file is when @image specifies extension and no -I argument is given to

I'm not sure of your use for this -- does this still sound useful?
