Oops, with this squashed in:

  diff --git a/tests/txinfo-builddir.test b/tests/txinfo-builddir.test
  index 64ca190..a09af80 100755
  --- a/tests/txinfo-builddir.test

  -AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS = cygnus ##!hack!info-in-builddir
  +AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS = !hack!info-in-builddir
   info_TEXINFOS = foo.texi subdir/bar.texi
   subdir_bar_TEXINFOS = subdir/inc.texi

Sorry for the noise,
