Thanks, Nick. It's a bit counterintuitive to my mind, but at least the
workaround is documented.

Cheers, Ben

Hi Ben,

This actually is the documented behaviour[1]:

  ... if you set the TEXINFO_TEX variable (see below), it overrides
  the location of [texinfo.tex] and turns off its installation into
  the source [by automake --add-missing] as well as its distribution.

There's no rationale given but I guess that disabling distribution
when tweaking these things is more flexible: it is easier to add the
file to EXTRA_DIST if you want it distributed than it is to prevent
distribution otherwise.

When setting TEXINFO_TEX to a different location (eg,
doc/texinfo.tex), the file is no longer distributed in the dist
tarball. Shouldn't it be?
