Did you compile this for yourself? If it did not reqire any changes and does
work, I should upload a Debian package, so gcc can test its stuff.

This seems to point at a different problem, maybe some file corruption.

Reinstallation should actually fix that. If it doesn't, there are some
entirely different problems you need to fix first.

OTOH, maybe it is a install-info compatibility problem. You can try the
latest install-info script from the linux dpkg package. (A dpkg update is on
the way).

I think it is recoverable, last hack would be to edit /var/lib/dpkg/status
manually and remove the dejagnu files (/var/lib/dpkg/info/dejagnu.list shows
them all). However, look at the problems above.
