Thank you.

I am finding this rather tedious.  The octave distribution does not 
have it, but octave needs it.  The B19 distribution doesn't have it.  
Evweryone in Unix land just has it, so they don't notice it is 
missing from the win32 world.

I have found a source distribution called texinfo which seems to have 
it.  I couldn't find a distribution with just info.

P.S. In my opinion 101% of installation instructions do not contain 
sufficient information.  They assume information elsewhere, mainly in 
the reader's head, because it is in the writer's head.
