As Karl Berry explained: that's a feature.  I don't want my own info
files end up in /usr; my local stuff belongs to /usr/local -- stuff
provided by the system belongs to /usr.  Thus using


is the solution (instead of the current default $(prefix)/info ).

The "real" problem is, Emacs resp. info (the binary) will collaps
/usr/share/info/dir and /usr/local/share/info/dir into one and the same
TOC _unconditionally_.  Thus I cannot view the Emacs manual coming with
the system (21.2) and the one I installed on my own (21.3.50 in
/usr/local/...) at the same time easily.
