Upgrading to coreutils-6.9 breaks info, as it tries to invoke gunzip.exe.
  This should be fixed in info to just invoke gunzip, since in gzip 1.3.9,
gunzip is merely a symlink (and the new coreutils no longer adds implicit
and confusing .exe extensions to symlinks).

Also, gzip has released a stable 1.3.12, which changes gunzip from a
symlink to a wrapper program (although I couldn't tell from the NEWS
whether it was a shell script or actual .exe).

Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
