The info installation as part of "make all install" is without images.
That's suitable for text terminal info clients, but when using Emacs
under X as an info client, the doc is so much inferior without the
images that it isn't funny.  "make info install-info" (typically split
between two make runs and using sudo just with the install-info target)
is supposed to create and install the info files including images.

But it has stopped doing that apparently.
