Re: dpkg bug?

    I got the following error message when running fink's dselect on my
    iMac.  When I ran 'install-info --help', as suggested by the eror
    message, I noticed that --info-dir=DIR is an option but not --infodir.

There are two different install-info programs, the one that comes with
Debian and the one that comes with Texinfo.  Perhaps the Debian one
(/usr/bin/install-info maybe?) will work.

As you surmise, it would seem that just replacing --infodir with
--infodir should also work, but I don't know how to do that within a
Debian package, since I don't use Debian.  I guess you could always
write a little shell script.

Meanwhile, I'll add --infodir as an alias for --info-dir in the next
release, but that won't do you any good right now :(.

Sorry I can't help more.
