In that case the 'path leading to the current directory' is adjusted to 
be right. Well after testing seems like texi2html is broken, but for
texi2html -I images/ -split chapter -o manuals_split/somewhere/ 
should lead to a path like
 ../../  images/ test.jpg

I don't think this is right. In general variables set by @set shouldn't
have a specific meaning (or am I missing something). In my opinion this
should better be a new command. If that command is set then -I is
ignored for images and the prefix is added unconditionaly. Otherwise the
solution I used in texi2html is used. The -I passed to makeinfo should
then be different depending on the output format used.
