I was going to say that I could add an INFO_EXT=.info to the Makefiles,
which MS-DOS could edit to empty, but since the info files are prebuilt
in the release tarfile, that doesn't help, unless you make a separate
MS-DOS tarfile.

IIUC, a general solution was suggested for this

Not just about that. For aesthetic reasons, it's nice for an info file
to have an .info extension (IMO). Obviously it's not super important.
