I guess we can add a command-line switch (--fixed-image-paths or
something) which would cause makeindex ignore the include path (the -I
switch) and just put the filename as is, appending extension if given,
without checking for file existence.

BTW, I've noticed that currently makeinfo in the HTML mode searches
the include path, but when outputting the <img> tag, it just outputs
the filename without the path that it has found.  Does anybody know if
this is by design?
