Bug#683201: texlive-font-utils: Invalid info dir entry

Package: texlive-font-utils
Version: 2012.20120611-1
Severity: normal

The file /usr/share/info/mf2pt1.info.gz contains (modulo unzipping) the

* mf2pt1::   Produce PostScript Type 1 fonts from Metafont source

This is not a valid info direntry, because it doesn't specify the info
file.  A valid entry should look something like

* mf2pt1: (mf2pt1).   Produce PostScript Type 1 fonts from Metafont source

This causes corruption of the info dir file each time it is regenerated
by update-info-dir.  Of course install-info should be more robust and
deal with this gracefully - I will soon file a separate bug for that,
and cross-link it from here.
