Mea culpa.

I must have installed GNU texinfo-3.12 into /usr, because
/usr/bin/install-info isn't owned by dpkg or RPM (I'm migrating from
Red Hat 4.2 to slink).

I guess to do the comparison requires the GNU sources, but that's not
too much to ask, since whoever wants to hack the required features
into GNU install-info will need the sources anyway.
