I think it will only work with the Cygwin port of makeinfo.  Native
Windows ports of makeinfo use semi-colons to separate directories in
TEXINPUTS and other variables that hold lists of directories.

I don't mind if we require the Cygwin port of makeinfo (assuming it's
okay with Jason, Andrew, and other developers who work on the Windows
port of Emacs), but I think we should at least tell that clearly in
the docs.
