I later realized this, and actually saw that for whatever reason it
was using the *second* install-info in my path, not the first one...
I'm no debian programmer, so I might not have my word to say, but if I
could, I would say that:
- there should be means to have a verbose report with at least the
full path of the tools.
- I saw many helping debian programs that hard code their names in the
report, what seems dead wrong: shell scripts should use $0 and
compute their names.
- Well, install-info might not be the best names since it exists
outside :) Maybe the path should be hard coded?
