Yes, MSYS programs always use binary I/O mode, because they simulate a
Posix environment.  They are therefore inappropriate for installing
Info manuals on Windows, only for building those manuals.

You need to use a native Windows build of install-info.

This probably means you have an old version of autoconf.

Do you really want to build Texinfo yourself, or do you just need a
program that someone else built?  If the latter, you can find
precompiled binaries here:


There's a corresponding source zip there, which is already
configured.  So perhaps you will be able to build it by typing "make"
into the MSYS shell window.
