Of course, I knew that. Although they will start moving to
/usr/share/info soon.

So, I will do:
	make TEXMF=`pwd`/debian/tmp/usr/share/texmf install-tex

That creates usr/share/texmf/tex/{texinfo,generic/dvips} directories
and those files in them. Would that be correct?

What to do with the install-info binary? IIRC dpkg provides it
already... should I just exclude it (and the manpage)?

Are there any Debian patches to texinfo stuff in teTeX package
that I should include, too?
