Package: grub
Version: 0.5.95
Severity: normal

On Debian systems

If makeinfo is not available when building the package, dummy info files are
generated and "install-info" fails on the "postinst" saying it doesn't find a
description for the files.

Also aclocal.m4 should be updated to look for makeinfo, otherwise it is
allways as not having makeinfo:

Posible fixes:

        o Not installing any info files if makeinfo is not available.
        o Giving --description option to "install-info".
        o Make more "complete" dummy files.
