Greetings, Per Mildner!

>>> I can not get makeinfo --pdf to work on todays Cygwin (same problem in

>>> It looks as if it can not find the lcircle10 font. I have tried installing most of the texlive-collection* packages but none seem to install that font.
>> It's in texlive-collection-latex.  Have you installed it?

Depends on the kind of dependency.
Creating PDF's isn't the primary task of mkinfo. Forcing just about everyone
to install texlive is just wrong.

>>  If so, what is the output of "kpsewhich circle10.tfm"?  Here's what I get:
>> $ kpsewhich circle10.tfm

> Should be "kpsewhich lcircle10.tfm" I assume, otherwise it finds nothing for me.

>> /usr/share/texmf-dist/fonts/tfm/public/latex-fonts/lcircle10.tfm
