Running "make install" should install the Info files in the doc
subdirectory - the documentation for the install-info program, as Ken
said, is contained in the texinfo.info Info file, which is generated
from texinfo.texi. "make install" should enter a dir entry for
"install-info" with the install-info program itself.
