Bug#535566: lintian: check for shipping of /usr/share/info/dir(.gz)?

Package: lintian
Version: 2.2.12
Severity: wishlist

Please add a test for lintian to check for the existence of
/usr/share/info/dir(.gz)? in debs.  

Upstream build systems usually install these files when they install
info pages using install-info, but in Debian, the "dir" file is
generated in an install-info trigger on install time and should not be
shipped in the deb.

Please see http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=535322 for
en example of such a bug.
