* gnu/packages/texinfo.scm (texinfo)[arguments]: Do not reset environment
before running configure with the native compiler, in a cross-compilation
context,
[inputs]: move perl from here ...
[native-inputs]: ... to here. Also add ncurses that is needed in a
cross-compilation context to build texinfo native tools.
