I have really missed Vinfo_file in defaults.cc;
of course this is the better solution.

You should really use the value of Vinfo_file.  That way, the location of the file can also be specified with the --info-file command line option.

Can we please get your full name? If you wish, inform me privately, and we will only display it inconspicuously somewhere in the source tree, not in the commit messages. It's safer for legal purposes to have a clear understanding of the origin of patches.

The documentation viewer remains empty due to a hard coded path that matches neither the info path for the installed program nor the new directory names in the source tree.

The attached patch should solve the problem.
