Typo in Makefile.defs for info install in muse & planner?

Mirko Vukovic
Hello,

This is on windows & emacs built for windows.  The installation
environment cygwin 1.7.

When installing the info for muse 3.20 & planner 3.42, I had to add
the `.info' suffix in the command for info dir installation as below:

install_info = install-info --info-dir=$(INFODIR) $(1).info || :

Here is the version number of my version of install-info:

> install-info --version
install-info (GNU texinfo) 4.13

BTW, what does the  `|| :' syntax mean?

It means ignore the return value of install-info and never stop 'make'
because of it.
