/usr/share/info/dir.gz if install-info is installed


I just built docbook2x and gettext and both contained the file mentioned
in subject. install-info created dir which got gzip later in the build
process. The strance thing is the almost none of the buildds ship this
file. According to [0] only s390(lxdebian) ships this file in gettext
and qingy and kfreebsd-* in tk707. From the unreleased architectures I
found dir.gz in sh4 but not in sparc64.

Comparing the build-logs it looks like those architectures have
install-info allready installed (since it was part of dpkg once) and
they never removed it by hand but upgraded to the package built from
texinfo source.

So this is to let you know, to remove this package in order to avoid
further problems :)
