I just did a little configury cleanup in setup to remove the warnings
about old usage.

And, I added a autodep stub.  setup.exe should now parse an autodep
line like:

autodep: string string

Since quoted strings are allowed, either of those can be the script
to run.  I think it probably makes sense for this to be, e.g.,

autodep: "usr/(?:share/)?info/.*" /usr/sbin/update-info-dir

This is the opposite of what I previously suggested.  I didn't remember
how the setup.exe parsing worked before.

The above is an example.  I will add something like that to texinfo if
the functionality shows up in setup.exe.

Achim, if you are actively working on this please let me know.
Otherwise, I'll probably just do this myself in the next several days.
