It's Reiner's version, as I used one of his snapshots, so I never ran
my makeinfo.

Don't worry about makeinfo then. Besides the unnecessary whitespace
changes (as makeinfo takes care of that), my patch had only the
following, still useful changes (I think you can merge them manually,
it is not much):

1. The following paragraph is rephrased from line 2 onwards:

 The installation of @AUCTeX{} will require the MSYS tool set from
address@hidden://}. If you have the Cygwin tool set from
address@hidden://} installed, that should do just fine as well,
-but it is quite larger and slower.

address@hidden://}.  The latter is larger (the download size of
+the base system is about 15 MB) but comes with a package manager that
+allows for updating the tool set and installing additional packages
+like, for example, the spell checker @w{aspell}.

2. Change `/cygwin/c' to `/cygdrive/c'. There is only one occurrence:

-names like @file{/cygwin/c}.  Instead, use the @file{c:} syntax.  It

3. Remove the leading whitespace in the following line as it leads to
   additional indentation in the Emacs info reader (I checked this
   right now with the 11.55 tar-ball, so the makeinfo that you used
   doesn't strip leading whitespace):

-  @kbd{M-x customize-group @key{RET} AUCTeX @key{RET}}
address@hidden customize-group @key{RET} AUCTeX @key{RET}}
