nil means not yet initialized. In this case, Info uses the environment
variable INFOPATH to initialize it, or `Info-default-directory-list'
if there is no INFOPATH variable in the environment.
The last element of `Info-default-directory-list' is the directory
where Emacs installs the Info files that come with it.
When `Info-directory-list' is initialized from the value of
`Info-default-directory-list', the first element of the resulting
list is the directory where Emacs installs the Info files that
come with it. This is so that Emacs's own manual, which suits the
version of Emacs you are using, will always be found first. (If
you want to override that, set INFOPATH in the environment.)
If you run the Emacs executable from the `src' directory in the Emacs
source tree, the `info' directory in the source tree is used as the last
element, in place of the installation Info directory. This is useful
when you run a version of Emacs without installing it.")
