No, it is different. In fedora info manuals are always welcome,
and texinfo is widespread. However it may be considered broken to 
have  missing install-info results in missing info files. In 
that case not having info in the buildroot would help finding the
issues.

Maybe we could add info to the minimal buildroot, remove it, then
rebuild everything and see if a lot of packges broke. We could do that
for all the utilities, but for info it may make more sense.
