You can do

~/src/texinfo/trunk/build/tp/texi2any.pl --html hello.texi

instead. This is hinted at in the README-hacking file, but maybe it 
isn't as clear as it could be.

(The paths to the installed locations are inserted into texi2any.pl to 
create texi2any, to which makeinfo is a link.)

So I don't think that a wrapper script is necessary here.
