AFAICT, this particular one is not only a packaging problem, but also manifests an install-info bug. Try it out with gnat_ugn_unw.info.gz from gcc-gnat-3.4.1-7.

Exactly, as I was trying to point out, install-info can't make up its mind.


Running this line install-info thinks a particular info file isn't indexed in dir:
/sbin/install-info --delete --info-dir=/usr/share/info /usr/share/info/gnat_ugn_unw.info.gz

Yet when running the line below immediately after the one above,
install-info gives an error because it now thinks a particular info file IS
indexed in dir:
/sbin/install-info --delete --info-dir=/usr/share/info /usr/share/info/gnat_ugn_unw.info.gz

Rob
