As mentioned by Ian Jackson, it is not strictly needed given the size of
the info package.

Would it make sense then to use /usr/share/info/debian/dir, and hardcode
this dir file in the info viewer.

My goal is to avoid corruptions by the packages manually installed (with
make && make install).

Do you know where the info files are installed in that case (in
/usr/share/info/dir, or somewhere in /usr/local)? And what dir file is

I'm short in time currently. I will try to update the proposal after next

Best wishes,
