As for bzip2 and gzip I'd left it for win32 users, OK?

Olaf has already written the answer. The problem is: if we decided to have
web2c, kpathsea and texinfo in one-part .info file, why making a build
still generates multipart files with _diffent_ names. That's no problem
for me to update texmf tree by hand having the same files. As I see,
during a build web2c.info* files are just copied from the sources;
kpathsea.info and texinfo, texinfo-1, texinfo-2, texinfo-3 are generated.
I'd like only to find any order.

Which one, multipart generated when making a build? Or -no-split one?
If so, I'd suggest changing that in the sources.
