           Summary: ocaml-docs doesn't install info files because using
                    wrong args to install-info
           Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6
           Version: 6.0
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: medium
          Priority: low

          Clone Of: 531204


+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #531204 +++

Description of problem:

Although ocaml-docs comes with info files, these are never
installed because we call /sbin/install-info with old-style
Debian args, and install-info doesn't really work properly
when you use those.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

ocaml-docs-3.11.1-4.fc13.x86_64
and all previous versions

How reproducible:

Always.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install ocaml.
2. Run 'info' or 'info ocaml'
3.

Actual results:

When running 'info' you'll see the OCaml page is missing from
the info directory.

When running 'info ocaml' you'll see the man page which is the
info fallback position when it thinks that there is no info
file installed.

Expected results:

Should show real OCaml info page.  Should be in directory.

Additional info:

The correct parameters which install ocaml.info are:

/sbin/install-info --entry="* ocaml: (ocaml).   The Objective Caml compiler and
programming environment" --section="Programming" /usr/share/info/ocaml.info
/usr/share/info/dir
