Yes, install-info is priority important and also found in my cowbuilder image. Sure, I can --login and remove it, then build from there, but I expect it autobuilders also have it in their chroots environments, which would result in building a package with that extra dir.gz. As Bernhard Link also suggested, I tracked this down to the recent install- info (being called by upstream makefile) which actually calls ginstall-info which creates the dir file into the package directory. This makes sense system- wide, but not for package directories, hence I guess such upstream targets are better to be avoided when it comes to installation into package directories. Your solution also works, but it kinda falls into `install'em-all-then-remove- some' category ;-) > Fixed and uploaded to mentors: > - URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/c/cflow > - Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable main > contrib non-free - dget > http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/c/cflow/cflow_1.3-1.dsc Uploaded.
